What is reasonable and good for users and the internet varies depending 
on the context. Consent within the UA and consent for a server are very 
different circumstances. We do not need to try to have parity between 
the two. Moreover, the issue is not one of definitions of consent, but 
rather context-specific guidelines for ensuring users' consent is 
deliberate and /informed.
