I had an action item to pull together the multiple public compliance texts (discussion continued through yesterday, so I held off, but we seem at a stable point, for better or worse on that.) 

*** If you think there is an option missing or out-of-date, please say so promptly ***

I see three current options:

(1)	 http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-tracking/2012Oct/0612.html which is revised action-246 from David Wainberg

TPE: Add a required "compliance" field to the tracking status resource 
in the TPE, where the value indicates the compliance regime under which 
the server is honoring the DNT signal. In 5.5.3 of the TPE:

/    A status-object MUST have a member named /_/compliance/_/that 
contains a single compliance mode token//./


TCS:

/Compliance mode tokens //must be associated with a legislative or 
regulatory regime in a relevant jurisdiction, or with a relevant and 
established self-regulatory regime./
(2) 	http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-tracking/2012Feb/0001.html which is action-61 from Tom Lowenthal

The response header is a clear commitment, which comes with all the
associated regulatory consequences. When an organization sends the
response header, they are making a specifically articulated promise
about their conduct in response to this request from this user.

With a required response header, nothing else is required to satisfy
this issue.
(3) 	http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-tracking/2012Jan/0266.html which is action-62 from Jonathan Mayer (and possibly Shane)

Operative text:
A party MUST make a public commitment that it complies with this standard.

Non-normative discussion:
A "public commitment" may consist of a statement in a privacy policy, a response header, or any other reasonable means.  This standard does not require a specific form of "public commitment."
