Rigo - Agreed there is need for more discussion of EU compliance with respect to DNT.  Yahoo! received one of the highest P3P compliance scores in some research that Lorrie Cranor's team executed a few years ago.  Despite that review, we believe that standard to be horribly broken and in need of significant repair (or simply put out to pasture).

Rob - I've had separate conversations with you on this topic.  Would you be willing to share your point of view here?

Thank you,
Shane

Shane, if you want to convey compliance to EU regulations, P3P is a better option (it has explicit semantics about that). I think that DNT is an ack of a user preference that is well defined. This user preference may also get some traction in the EU market (hopefully) and serves a certain purpose there (usable consent mechanism). But I don't think it should convey EU data protection regulation compliance. I think the latter would be a good topic for the DNT-NG Workshop.
