text for Request for Comments/Call for Objections, with deadline this Friday

From: Peter Swire <peter@peterswire.net>
Date: Wed, 10 Jul 2013 08:30:45 -0700
To: "public-tracking@w3.org" <public-tracking@w3.org>
Message-ID: <CE02F665.90A6A%peter@peterswire.net>
Below please find the current version of the request for comments/call for objections, for comments due this Friday at 5:00 p.m. pacific.  We expect to discuss this on the call today.


Overview:

This question addresses ISSUE-215. The group's decision will also affect
subsequent decisions on ISSUEs 5, 16, 188, 199.

The Digital Advertising Alliance and other groups havesubmitted a package
of proposed changes to the Editors Draft (also known as the “June Draft.”).  See PDF of proposed changes, as amended on July 9.  This package proposes changes
to the definitions of "tracking", "de-identified", "de-linked", and
"third-party compliance."  It deletes any requirement to shift to no
unique identifier where that is reasonably available.

Under either option, there would be subsequent consideration in the
Working Group of change proposals.  The focus of this Call for Objections
is to determine the base text, and consideration subsequently of change
proposals will be shaped by which text is used as the base going forward.

This Call for Objections is a step in our "Getting to Closed"
<http://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/decision-policy.html>.

If you have an objection to one or more of these proposed options, please
describe your objection via this poll with clear and specific reasoning.
(The purpose of the poll is not to gather a count.)

=====

Option A: Adopt the DAA proposal as base text

Adopt the DAA proposal as base text, including to make the proposed
changes to definitions of "tracking", "de-identified", "de-linked", and
third-party compliance, and to delete any requirement to shift to no
unique identifier where that is reasonably available.
=====

Option B: Continue with Editors Draft as base text

Continue to have the Editors Draft as base text, and decide not to adopt
the set of changes listed in Option A.
