we need discussion, Dr. Dix letter, paper

Dr. Dix, as you know, is the chair of the very important privacy body known as the Berlin Group.  I believe the letter and paper is intended to tell the WC3 WG that any DNT spec must address respect for context, ensure actual purpose limitation, provide user transparency and--critically-real control.  Dr. Dix, I believe from my reading, also says that for a DNT regime to be effective, there cannot be such techniques as fingerprinting used.  

I urge the group to invite Dr. Dix or his representative to speak to us as soon as possible, so we can discuss what leading privacy DPAs intended us to consider prior to Last Call.  

I suggest that Peter and Matthias invite Dr. Dix to our next call.
