As there were no objections by the Working Group, I will close 
ISSIE-197. Please find the new consensus text on the disregard signal below.

> >A tracking status value of D means that the origin server is unable or unwilling to respect a tracking preference received from the requesting user agent. An origin server that sends this tracking status value must detail within the server's corresponding privacy policy the conditions under which a tracking preference might be disregarded.

> >For example, an origin server might disregard the DNT field received from specific user agents (or via specific network intermediaries) that are deemed to be non-conforming, might be collecting additional data from specific source network locations due to prior security incidents, or might be compelled to disregard certain DNT requests to comply with a local law, regulation, or order.

IF THIS TURNS OUT NOT TO BE THE CASE, EITHER THE LOGIC THAT IS LEADING TO THE D SIGNAL MAY NEED RE-EXAMINATION, OR THIS SPECIFICATION, OR BOTH.
