I hope this isn't late.  

I vote for John Simpson's option, if it is on table.  

As for market research, the distinctions between such research and the targeting function have become intertwined (see: http://www.adexchanger.com/online-advertising/google-to-support-viewable-impressions-grp/; http://www.comscore.com/Press_Events/Press_Releases/2012/4/For_Display_Ads_Being_Seen_Matters_More_than_Being_Clicked).

  I want to clarify that when DNT:1 is sent, that market research cannot be used to improve the targeting function of the user -or used to target other users based on what has been collected or analyzed on the DNT-enabled user.  I hope that Kathy Joe and others will specify what data is collected and used for market research that will be impacted by DNT:1.

Many thanks and see many of you soon.
