Alan, 

that's my fear. Having been involved in Internet filtering 
discussions for a long time, I can tell you that the request from 
PCMCP is not really reasonable for a large variety of reasons. 
Therefore I said, it is not sufficient to argue only in the TPWG.  
Because you could probably find some rule from a less democratic 
country that will require a total filter and identification. Would 
we then just say "we honor dnt" and come through the backdoor via 
permitted use and track everything for good? If this effort is not 
only about advertisement, this is your use case. We get into choppy 
waters here. While law can and should override, not every code of 
conduct should trump the TPC IMHO. I see that the industry wants to 
just get rid of the problem. But I don't believe we can do so easily 
without damaging our overall effort. Maybe the 6 weeks window offers 
an escape line.
