Hear, Hear! Looks like a feature that we may want to discuss. What 
about opening an issue? 

I would suggest to add a status to 5.2 that introduces state "T": 

 T   <strong>Ignoring</strong>: The designated resource believes
     it has not received a valid DNT header and will behave as
     if no DNT header was sent. 

Would that work?
