Applying a list of prohibited practices to data retained for any publicly stated time period would reverse the widespread agreement over the form of the Third Party Compliance section: a general prohibition with an enumerated (white) list of permitted uses.

Umm, I don't know why you think that has "wide-spread agreement".
I have objected to it a number of times, and I have seen no evidence
to suggest that a blanket prohibition would be adopted by third party
sites given that those sites have very little control over what data
is received.  Sites have suggested they are willing to turn off
tracking because that is *behavior* to which they can comply.
