Re: Using "tracking" in compliance document (ISSUE-203)

I have addressed most of the comments received during the teleconference
in the latest version at


I have also produced an alternative B that uses first and third party terms,
permits first party tracking in general (including data append) as a
permitted use, and restores the (redundant) text on user identifiers
and the unclear-consensus text on the scope being limited to user agents
that look like browsers.


AFAICT, the latter only makes editorial changes to what is currently in
TCS, except for what is necessary to reflect the normative decisions in
TPE, and adds a "1" qualifier for first party use (previously discussed
when we eliminated it as a TSV).
