I believe the consensus in Bellevue which we're currently reviewing is that we would make permitted use qualifiers optional for the tracking status resource and so we wouldn't necessarily need to change the format of the response header.)

If someone wants that, they will have to open a new issue with
the exact text to be placed in the document.  Most of the text
can be found below.

-            Qualifiers that indicate limitations on tracking correspond to
-            the specific permitted uses in [[!TRACKING-COMPLIANCE]]. An
-            origin server indicating one or more of those permitted uses
-            also indicates that it conforms to the requirements associated
-            with those permitted uses. Multiple limitation qualifiers mean
-            that multiple permitted uses of tracking might be present and
-            that each such use conforms to the associated requirements.
-            All limitation qualifiers imply some form of tracking might
-            be used and thus MUST NOT be provided with a tracking status
-            value of <code>N</code> (not tracking).
-          </p>
-          <p>
-            Future extensions to this protocol might define additional
-            characters as qualifiers from the
-            <code><a>ext-qualifier</a></code> set (consisting of the
-            remaining unused lowercase letters, dot, dash, and underscore).
-            Recipients SHOULD ignore extension qualifiers that they do not
-            understand.

-            The list of qualifiers is intended to correspond to constraints
