So you're creating a profile of an ID. (e.g. is not really reasonable in spending). You remove the raw tracks (as seen tempora article) and keep the profile (is interested in tempora). But what do I do if I do not want to add to my profile, if I don't want to be known to like tempora? 
How can I opt out of the aggregate scoring? According to your plan, sending DNT:1 doesn't seem to be sufficient. Not looking at the page? 
That would be exactly the democratic fall out people fear. How can we address that?
