I am not sure what you mean by that. However, if a party were to base
its customisation on coarse-grained 'buckets' and not on individual
profiles I would be inclined to agree that this should be outside the
scope of DNT.

As always, the devil is in the details. Could you elaborate a bit
further on this in order to allow us to imagine what you are proposing?
