Fred,

Again - wrong.  In almost all cases Search and form submission will fall under 1st party protections either directly or through meaningful interaction.

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.

cheers
