I don't think that WIRED story is accurate, but I could be wrong. John Battelle (an IAB Board Member) recently wrote a blog piece and included a mock up of such a publisher exclusion, but upon visits to the WIRED site IAB has not encountered such a pop up. I think this is a theoretical exercise, which is fun and informative, but not how we should be creating global standards.
