recap: valid out of band consent trumps DNT. You do not need an 
permitted use for that.

The permitted uses are tied to a specific purpose at the moment. 
Leaving the principle of purpose limitation for permitted uses is a 
concern to me.

If the purpose is to measure behavior across sites and devices, without 
changing the behavior, and not knowing if you have consent for this type 
of measurement, you are basically asking for a permitted use under DNT 
with zero added value for the DNT=1 expressions of users that you do not 
have OOBC for. I hope you see that you can not solve a problem by not 
calling it a problem anymore. You are asking for a disproportional wild 
card.

DNT has to be meaningful.
