Non-normative section currently immediately follows the definition (and includes the geolocation note from before), but we could move this elsewhere if it reads as too verbose.

Okay, but it is supposed to be hyphenated (de-identified and re-identified).

These changes are now reflected in my i203b proposal as well.  The other
editorial changes were already fixed.

I do have questions about two earlier changes:

 		<h3>Unknowing Collection</h3>

The above section no longer applies in my proposal and should not be in
compliance.  There are only two possibilities: prior consent or DNT.
Prior consent always overrides DNT, regardless of the intent of that
consent (e.g., the consent might even limit tracking more than DNT:1).

The text above implies UGE is some additional signal; it is not.
UGE would be reflected in a different DNT header field.  Hence, the
last sentence above is simply incorrect -- there is no opportunity for
multiple signals to be received other than consent + DNT, in which case
consent is *not* a conflict -- it is designed to override so that a user
doesn't have to twiddle their general preference.

Also, the following change is apparently a clarification to the definitions
currently in TPE.  Should I add it to TPE?
