Data aggregation would be something like "group this data set by country
and then give me the arithmetic mean for this variable for each country"
like `SELECT country, avg(example) GROUP BY country`. I do not see the
connection there to dnt and ad selection. You seemed to be saying that,
if you have dnt enabled, you should not get ads based on where some ad-
network thinks your IP-address belongs to geographically, while weather
widgets could use this to tell you about the weather in "your" area.
