It's not about missing the boat, it's about different categories of people having different expectations. (not saying that I agree with Jeff or you, but just that the spectrum is large.)

Agreed, but acknowledge that the success of DNT doesn't mean at all a success for certain category of users with regards to personal data usage.  Basically the « success » of DNT is measured in terms of deployment. The satisfaction of consumers organization will be on how meaningful it is to have DNT on. 
One is not necessary the consequence of the other. :)
