3rd data append companies bundle huge data sets that include public information, but also proprietary information.  Offline is also integrated with online as well.   I don't think (in the US) there is serious consent to the current state of data append.  This is not out of scope for a robust DNT spec.

And, third parties will not be able to collect any data about DNT:1 users.  You are proposing to restrict first parties from acquiring data that is publicly available, collected with consent or offline data.  This is out of scope for DNT.
