ISSUE-137 alternative text proposal:

> A service provider MUST identify, using the machine-readable format specified in this document,
> 1) that it is a service provider,
> 2) its own party,
> 3) the party it is providing service to, and
> 4) whether the party it is providing service to is a first party, third party, or service provider.




ISSUE-144 objection:

I do not believe the TPE protocol should constrain websites and users to a take-it-or-leave-it slate of privacy choices.  Users should be able to selectively grant a subset of requested exceptions.  A website may choose to respond by requiring the full set of objections.


ISSUE-164 alternative text proposal:
> If multiple domains on a page belong to the same party, then this fact MUST be declared using the same-party attribute.
