RE: ISSUE-179: Make sure in the spec that we clarify information provided explicitly by a user (e.g. data typed into a form on a site with a clear privacy policy) is not subject to DNT.

A click on a navigation button seems just as explicit as a form submission, and excluding navigation buttons would render DNT meaningless so there would appear to be little case for excluding form submission.  Further forms are commonly used for search and surely DNT should prevent the collection of search queries to profile users.
