look at the input docs, and the overall history of this issues, it's 
pretty clear the predominant concern is with the collection of data 
across sites for purposes of online behavioral advertising. Although I'm 
aware that some participants in the group would like the standard to 
encompass a broader set of issues, I disagree with your assertion that 
as a group our definitions and goals have evolved.
