Could you walk us through an example where the widget case would apply?
I am specifically looking for something like "Load http://example.org,
locate widget X and do Y; even though you never heard about Z, who own
and operate the widget X, information A, B, and C is now available to Z
under first-party rules of the DNT standard, even though the address bar
in your desktop browser does not indicate Z in any way".
