I disagree. I realize it will be a challenge to get right, but since 
users will be educated about what DNT does or does not do before they 
make the choice to turn it on, they'll understand that any post-DNT:1 
personalization they're seeing is being done in accordance with the DNT 
rules, and so with limited data retention. In fact, users could come to 
understand it as a great benefit: they get the personalization, but 
without their browsing history being accumulated and retained.
