I think it is necessayr to discuss the nuance in market research. It is 
a broad concept and creates a lot of misunderstanding at the moment.

Peter made it clear in the F2F, after talking with Esomar, that panel 
calibration based types of market research are not OK when DNT=1 and 
needs explicit consent. Just like personal panel invitations are consent 
based at the moment, e.g. when you fill in a survey that you get within 
a customer loyalty programm.

Market research as in the traditional sense is to be limited through 
discussions. I got the sense that the nuance of what Esomar is looking 
for may become clear.

But I agree that a non-limited definition as found in the multi-site 
princeples is not the way forward.
