ISSUE-45 has nothing to do with selecting between several regimes or 
even expressing adherence to a certain regime. Can users than send 
DNT:1-NDL to Google because they require Google to follow the Dutch 
DNT regime? You're going fully into the negotiation hell. No offense 
intended really, but it simply doesn't work that way. However nice 
it would be for the political landscape and however happy people 
would be. It just doesn't work protocol-wise.

P.S. For the fun:
Your DNT is wicked? Please use mine!
