I propose th following text be added at the appropriate point:

A party may claim that it is not tracking, if it:
1) only collects identifying data which is strictly necessary to answer 
the user's HTTP request and to fulfil it's contractual obligation 
towards the user
2) does not send, collect or check for unique identifiers
3) does not correlate the data of a DNT HTTP request with any other data
4) deletes the identifying data as soon as the original purpose is fulfilled

The TPE provides for the status header N, and this compliance language mirrors that status.  Some 1st party servers will want to signal that they collect no tracking data.
