I think that, in the case that the term ‘tracking’ is (a) not used in any formal way by the TPE, but only to label things and (b) the definition relies on a term which is both undefined and ambiguous, we should question whether a formal definition is needed or appropriate in the TPE.

I tend to think it's better to leave such definitions out of the TPE, and address them in the compliance docs, if necessary.
