(Issue 46 is related to Issue 81 for DNT responses and granular user control)

It'll be important to record exceptions client side as a Publisher will need some signal on whether to trigger an exception dialogue with a user or not.  

Example Use Case:
1.	User turns on DNT and visits ExamplePublisher1.com
2.	ExamplePublisher1.com does not receive a signal it's on the exceptions list
3.	ExamplePublisher1.com requests exception from user to access content for free
4.	User grants exception to ExamplePublisher1.com (and listed parties <to be discussed separately>)
5.	User views content
6.	User returns to ExamplePublisher1.com a week later
7.	DNT signal is still turned on but ExamplePublisher1.com is sent an exemption flag (or else doesn't send a DNT signal at all)
8.	In either case, it'll be important that ExamplePublisher1.com know to not trigger the exception request for this user/web browser/device

Subject: DISCUSSION: Selective Opt-in (chapter 5 of editors draft) [ISSUE-42, ISSUE-27, ISSUE-46]

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


Regards,
matthias
