Sid, 

your vision really sounds good to me. And I agree that DNT is a tool in 
the box, not more. I agree that browsers could use that tool in various 
ways. Bundling the tool with other tools is clearly where browsers 
compete. So I don't think the TPE or TCS should prohibit or preclude or 
require other things. 

I would hope though, that the UI for switching that mode allows for 
simple, comprehensive and natural choices and makes it as easy to turn 
DNT:1 on as it is to turn DNT:0 on.
