Lee,

I believe the UGE support would need to extend to the extension/plug-in in this case.  The goal is say you can only send the DNT signal if you're also able to store/send the UGE signal as well.  

As for extension/plug-in balance for setting the DNT signal, we agreed to this with David Singer on issue 153 on/after the call last week so Brad is working with David to provide that edit to the group.

Shane, 

I'm imagining a situation where an extension or plug-in enforces the user's DNT preference in the browser, which itself supports UGE.  The extension/plug-in relies on the browser's UGE facility, but does not support UGE itself.  

Is that in or out under this updated text?

Lee

That said, it appears others felt the current structure of the document could be interpreted differently.  As such, I propose we add a specific statement at the beginning of section 6 making this more clear:

The chairs have asked for any additional proposals by tomorrow (December 5th), which you can email to the group (this thread is fine) and add to the wiki here:
