The legal solution that results in the right incentives is simple. Make the 
site responsible for the choice of services they make. We can at least write 
that assumption into the compliance Spec or in the "how-to". 

I don't believe we should go down the DRM - route and want to control every 
subservice of a subservice, neither technically nor legally. This is 
guaranteed to go wrong. We know that from DRM. It would also overcharge the 
DNT Specifications IMHO.
