Re: ISSUE-219 (context separation)

Hi Justin,

Iím confused here. My proposal not to allow data append, now subject of a call for objections, includes language that would prevent using data gathered as a 1st party when you are a third party:

"When DNT:1 is received:

"A 1st Party MUST NOT combine or otherwise use identifiable data received from another party with data it has collected while a 1st Party.

"A 1st Party MUST NOT share identifiable data with another party unless the data was provided voluntarily by, or necessary to supply a service explicitly requested by, the user.

"A Party MUST NOT use data gathered while a 1st Party when operating as a 3rd Party.

"A 1st Party MAY elect further restrictions on the collection or use of such data."
