Hi Peter  This was raised on last week's call. I was asked to come up with language for the TPE, not the compliance doc.

Alan:

Thank you for sending.

As a process matter, I think it makes sense to consider this and other text proposals as proposed amendments to the June Draft.

Here is my suggestion for language pursuant to Action 231.

A user agent MUST have a default tracking preference of unset (DNT is not enabled; no tracking preference signal is sent). A user agent extension or add-on must not alter the user's tracking preference setting unless it complies with Section 5 of this document (User Preferences). Software outside of the user agent that causes a DNT header to be sent (or modifies existing headers) MUST NOT do so without following the requirements of this section; such software also MUST ensure the expressed preference reflects the individual user's intent.
