Re: ISSUE-5: definition of tracking


whether you exclude access logs from the initial definitions or 
whether you cover them by permitted uses is just a matter of taste. 
So please do not use the definition for the access log argument. The 
real question on access logs is the time of non-anonymized 
retention. W3C anonymizes logs as a matter of policy after 6 weeks. 
This also helps with exuberant subpoenae. We can (and should IMHO) 
discuss this explicitly instead of complicating the definition.
