I believe the editorial change that substituted "party" for " website" has already been made.  However, there is another inappropriate use of the term "website" under user agent compliance. I think the term web sites should be deleted where indicated below, as this is the user agent compliance section.

User agents and web sites are responsible for determining the user experience by which a tracking preference is controlled. User agents and web sites must ensure that tracking preference choices are communicated to users clearly and accurately and shown at the time and place the tracking preference choice is made available to a user. User agents and web sites must ensure that the tracking preference choices describe the parties to whom DNT applies and must make available brief and neutral explanatory text to provide more detailed information about DNT functionality.

That text must indicate that:

  1.  if the tracking preference is communicated, it limits collection and use of web viewing data for certain advertising and other purposes;
  2.  when DNT is enabled, some data may still be collected and used for certain purposes, and a description of such purposes; and
  3.  if a user affirmatively allows a particular party to collect and use data about web viewing activities, enabling DNT will not limit collection and use from that party.

User agents and web sites must obtain an explicit choice made by a user when setting controls that affect the tracking preference expression.

A user agent must transmit the tracking preference according to the [TRACKING-DNT<http://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/drafts/tracking-compliance.html#bib-TRACKING-DNT>] specification.

Implementations of HTTP that are not under control of the user must not generate or modify a tracking preference.
