David,

Not sure I understand why this is out of scope or changes a company's business practices.  It simply says that if I send the DNT message, I should not be penalized for having done so.

It's not the role of the standard to require businesses to require or suggest broad changes to a company's business practices (such as giving away content and services for free) that aren't directly related to implementation of the standard and handling of the relevant data.
