Rob,

To again be clear this has nothing specifically to do with targeted
advertising.  If we envision a world with only contextually targeted ads,
they still need to be counted.  A party still certifies that a million
impressions were "quality" i.e. went to people not robots.  This honestly
has absolutely zero to do with turning targeted advertising into a
permitted use. 

But to your last point - do we care if DNT:1 requested ads result in lower
value?  I am hoping that your comment was not really thought through,
because, yes, I would hope that absolutely everyone, given likely adoption
rates, hopes this is not the case.  We aren't actually rooting for
publishers to make less money are we?! Is success here measured in privacy
protection or commercial failure?

-Brooks
