As stated previously these are unneeded and could equally be conveyed with current fields in the TSO.  
As a reminder to the entire group,
The W3C is focused on building a technical standard that serves the world, not just the EU.  So any concepts of SHOULD or MAY should keep this is mind.
If EU law comes with the clarity and certainty that some are suggesting, that provides all of the necessary obligation to implementers to treat those elements as SHOULDs or MUSTs.

Thanks for this, Mike,

I think this document serves as a good basis for the discussion.

As I recalled before, for consent to be valid in the EU, providing 
information is key (fairness and transparency principle). Under the 
draft) ePrivacy Regulation (EU) 2017/0003 (hereinafter: ePR) proposal, 
consent may be expressed by using the appropriate technical settings of 
a software application enabling access to the internet. Furthermore, 
users shall be given the possibility to withdraw their consent at any 

The information properties the TSR should express are IMHO (a) who 
collects (b) what UID (c) for which purpose and (d) shares it with whom. 
These follow directly from the GDPR and the ePR proposal. Having the 
option for data controllers to express the information in the TSR will 
help them to become compliant with the law and will reduce the amount of 
pop-ups users are confronted with. I am aiming for the normative 
requirement of 'the TRS SHOULD contain property xyz'. But we should 
discuss whether a MAY could work as well.

Have a nice weekend,
