Hi Roy, 

the technical specification consistently uses "cross-site tracking" for every 
mention of tracking. Despite some quick search, I haven't found a decision to 
only talk about "cross-site tracking". Can you indicate where this was 
decided?

If it wasn't already decided, I unfortunately must raise an issue. Because 
saying "cross-site tracking" consistently in the technical preference 
expression specification would change the scope of the DNT-header and reduce it 
to mere cross-site data collection. While I say you expressing that 
preference, I also saw opposition against that wording. Additionally, saying 
"cross-site tracking" does not correspond to the first party requirements 
indicated in the Tracking Compliance Specification and also trespasses into the 
scope of the tracking compliance specification. 

Best, 

Rigo
