Hi Jonathan,

I believe that we agree to focus on this new approach:
- Many participants expressed preference for the new approach (while 
saying that some fine-tuning is still required)
- All participants "can live with" this new approach

 From a privacy perspective, IMHO it is beneficial that user agents can 
validate exceptions
with the actual user and can keep an (editable) database of all granted 
exceptions. Also - due to the fact that less
requirements are imposed on the UA - I believe that UAs can compete and 
differentiate more effectively with this new approach.
