Could you clarify what you refer to as "EU participants" and "opt-in"? Am not sure I can follow.

Kind regards,

I think this is central. But I do not agree with you. I think that sending
and ACK an DNT signal means data collection for "tracking and
advertisement". This is the purpose set in the compliance specification.
High level purposes are not foreign to the system. So I hope we can overcome
that obstacle.

     "DNT: 0" does not describe a purpose. Therefore, each site
     must construct its own consent dialog, with its own unique
     opt-in for EU participants, to ensure that the permission
     it has requested is reasonably understood by its audience
     and sufficiently descriptive of the data collection purpose.
