I would be glad for clarification from W3C staff, but my understanding is that there is not "sponsorship" of this document by W3C.

The individuals who volunteered for that community group can write documents that are posted to that community group.

I look forward to working with the participants in our own Tracking Protection Working Group when lunch begins at 11:30 Monday, and our session begins at 12:15.

And, happily, getting around Cambridge this evening has been straightforward.

This might be the most offensive document I have ever seen sponsored by an official standard setting body. I hope that the W3C has a better understanding of how the Internet is architected, anti-trust and copyright laws, and concepts of Internet freedom.  Let's not begin our face to face meeting by considering such nonsense.

It is proposed that user choice over the advertising network should be improved.  With this small change in the dynamics, it would no longer be necessary to bend to stake holders that threaten to walk out because the market would open up to other networks that cater for users concern about their privacy.  See: http://www.w3.org/community/pua/wiki/Choice_of_Advertising_Network

I believe there are many other benefits that governments and their voters would be interested in so please give this some consideration and pass the word around in discussions.
