only if you make the assumption that the EU laws apply to the user and 
only if the service cares. So there is no change to a situation of 
today. If AdChoices is in the US and treats everybody according to its 
domestic rules, that should be fine. EU citizens shouldn't reveal their 
origin only to get a DNT:1 treatment with DNT:unset.  Because you get 
the same treatment if you care to enable DNT:1 without revealing origin 
and this way you get equal treatment world wide.
