I reviewed the meeting notes for all 3 days of Seattle and was unable to find a point of consensus - let alone directed and meaningful discussion - on the topic of allowing more than one compliance specification to co-exist as a valid WKL resource element.

Day 1:  http://www.w3.org/2012/06/20-dnt-minutes

Some discussion around "What does the landscape look like?" about multi-standards but definitely no hum or consensus moment here (if anything the conversation skews towards suggesting a DNT standard will emerge with or without W3C with varying views if that's a good or bad thing in the US vs. EU).

Day 2:  http://www.w3.org/2012/06/21-dnt-minutes 

In "Reflections", there is a mention from Aleecia that "Under any of these proposals, small OBA companies will go out of business" but no specific discussion of disallowing more than one compliance standard for implementers to aid or avoid this.  For example, general agreement on "Policy" field pointing to a human readable policy but no distinction on whether that policy could say "I support DNT and comply with DAA Principles - click here to learn more."

Day 3:  http://www.w3.org/2012/06/22-dnt-minutes 

Discussion and general agreement on allowing optional reference URIs but not much details on the elements within each (outside of the deep dive on the Permitted Use enumeration with Tom).  No mention of multiple compliance standards being communicated (in the pro or con).

<Side Note - reading through 3 full days of both verbal and written notes is painful!  A HUGE hats off / round of applause to Nick Doty and whomever helped pull these notes together - WOW!>

So, post this lengthy review process, can I now please request that a new issue be opened for this topic?

Thank you,

No problem - I'll look at the meeting notes and post them to the group to provide evidence.

please do not overburden the chair. In W3C the Chair asserts consensus. This may be a feeling in the room. If you disagree, please provide evidence that the Chair was wrong assuming consensus. 
You may find such evidence in the meeting minutes or on the mailing list. 

This doesn't say who is right or wrong, but Chairs are vulnerable and exposed in the W3C Process and we have to protect them.
