Hi Team,

as agreed in the telco, I'd like to kick-off the discussion on
selective opt-in:
 - ISSUE-43: Sites should be able to let the user know their options
when they arrive with Do Not Track
 - ISSUE-27: How should the "opt back in" mechanism be designed?
 - ISSUE-46: Enable users to do more granular blocking based on
whether the site responds honoring Do Not Track

>From my perspective, the goal of this discussion is to decide on how a
site can explain to a user to opt back in and how this opting-back in
shall be achieved technically/protocol-wise.

Please state your opinions and start a discussion.

Again I urge you to distinguish:
 GOALS: What do we want to achieve
 CRITERIA: How do we want to assess the quality of a solution
 OPTIONS: Different proposals how to achieve the GOALS
   while maximizing certain CRITERIA
