Colleagues,

You inserted this language under first party compliance:

Parties that disregard a DNT signal MUST respond to the user agent, using the response mechanism defined in the
[TRACKING-DNT] specification.

That seems a strange place.  Aren't you concerned about third parties?  Also, this seems to imply that a server would be compliant if choose to ignore all DNT:1 signals, and informed that it was doing so...

Regards,
John
