David:  Personalization is connected to the data collection and tracking process, as you know.  Can you tell us your suggestions for the limited parameters on this proposal.  Given the depth of personalization/data driven techniques, it is important to understand the contours of your proposal.

many thanks,

Jeff

> Many DNT proponents have expressed the view that personalization itself is not a problem, and not the target of DNT. For example, the low entropy cookie proposal we have seen would allow personalization based on data collected across sites, but stored in large "buckets" of users. An industry proposal would allow personalization without accumulation of browsing history. This is consistent with statements from group members and DNT proponents outside the group that the primary issue to solve with DNT is the collection of users' browsing history. While I am not proposing a particular required implementation here, these examples make the point that personalization should be allowed given some set of criteria for collection and use limitations that we could determine.
