Rigo,

Could you explain why a Server couldn't respond to a DNT:1 signal with the compliance regime they are upholding in the context of honoring that user's DNT:1 signal?

If a user in the UK sends a DNT:1 signal to a Server in Ireland, couldn't the Server reply to the DNT:1 that it is both honoring the DNT:1 signal and following the EDAA code of conduct to do so?  How does this break EU law?

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!
