Okay. So our terms will be -
A6(1)(a)-non-explicit-consent
     legal basis where valid explicit consent is NOT required
A6(1)(a)-explicit-consent
     legal basis where valid explicit consent IS required

as not -
A6(1)(a)
     legal basis where valid consent is required
A6(1)(a)-explicit-consent
     legal basis where valid explicit consent is required

I'm curious - why is A9(2)(a) treated as a legal basis but not A22(2)(c) 
and A49(1)(a) ?
Doesn't A9 also state conditions where the explicit version of consent 
in A6(1)(a) is needed? i.e. use of special categories of personal data

In my mind, I'm seeing this as -
------------------------------------------------------------------
consent for:     legal basis       special case       legal basis
------------------------------------------------------------------
personal data      A6(1)(a)     special categories       A9(2)(a)
------------------------------------------------------------------
data transfer      A6(1)(a)   third country transfer    A49(1)(a)
------------------------------------------------------------------
Of course there are more conditions to A49 such as safeguards etc.
