	(a) Re-direction, shortened URLs, click analytics -- what kind of tracking is this? (ISSUE-97)
ACTION-196 on Justin Brookman: Draft text on whether url shorteners are first or third parties
	Text: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-tracking/2012Jun/0106.html 

	(b) Third parties should be prohibited from acting or representing themselves as first parties. (ISSUE-123)
ACTION-116 on Thomas Lowenthal

	Proposed edit: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-tracking/2012Mar/0126.html

	(c) Third party as first party - is a third party that collects data on behalf of the first party treated the same way as the first party? (ISSUE-49)

	Text: http://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/track/actions/161

	Counter-proposal: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-tracking/2012Jun/0313.html

	(e) Specify "absolutely not tracking" (ISSUE-119)
ACTION-110 on Ninja Marnau: Write proposal text for what it means to "not track"
Text: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-tracking/2012Feb/0362.html
Counter-proposal from Roy: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-tracking/2012Feb/0403.html
Several people suggested changes, mostly "let's call this something other than 'not tracking' please." One suggestion there: "Exceeds the compliance standard and does not collect and retain any data"

Buried in this discussion was David Singer's attempt to define tracking: "Tracking is the retention or use, after a transaction is complete, of data records that are, or can be, associated with a single user." (I'd append: ", user agent, or device.")   Unlike every other time someone has made the attempt, the one and only reply was in support. Does that mean we can live with this?
