The consent model of the ePrivacy Directive has a narrower meaning
because if focuses solely on cookies, under the presumption that cookies
are personal data. Since we're not going to repeat the sins of the
ePrivacy Directive in this WG, we're talking about data collection in a
much wider sense, therefore my reference to the DPD.

I am aware of that, I've pointed out in my earlier mails why it won't
keep me from pointing out where it is a more sensible approach than
where the WG consensus for now seems to lie.

Yes, which I think is a necessity to give this specification something
of a chance of making sense.
