I am a little confused about what you mean here. When you say "scheme  
and UI," does that mean something other than UI? I agree that the spec  
should not dictate UI (my last email contained a UI discussion only  
because there was a specific question about it).

But if you're saying that all privacy considerations (including  
consent) should be optional whether they manifest in a UI or not,  
that's a different story. Can you clarify?
