proposed TSV for potential consent

Bah, resend with a fixed subject ...

I think this is related to ISSUE-195, but really should have been
raised as a separate issue.

There was a long discussion about a new tracking status for systems
that only track by consent but do not actually determine consent
during request time, originally requested by Alex and more recently
by Ronan.  Unfortunately, the discussion kept going in the weeds,
at least partly because people mistook the request as an expansion
on the existing consent (C) response.

So, I have written a proposal within the editors' draft as a new
option with a TSV of P for potential consent.
