Yes, I get that, but the example given of FedEx doesn't make sense to me.  DNT is about the communication between users (and their user-agents) and sites/servers.  Unless FedEx were *also* a 3rd party on the 1st party site, then what the first communicates to them (or anyone else, including posterity in their memoirs) is a concern for the privacy policy, not DNT.

'Data append' doesn't give me enough … um … data … about who wants to append what data to what other data.

Is this about the data a 1st party site sees, and appending to previously collected data as a 1st party?  (If DNT:1 is set, then there isn't any previous 3rd party data).  If so, I can't see any reason for a set of rules, or a set that would work.

Is this about data a 3rd party site sees, and it has data collected as a 1st party?  The rules are fairly clear, I think, on that also.

Is this about data that the 1st party sees, and passes to a 3rd party for them to add?  The rules seem clear on both the passing and the retention there, also.

Someone clue me in what the question/scenario is?
