Hi TPWG Team,

Rob suggested the following editorial change to clarify the spec before
CR. The proposal removes and compresses section 10.1 and adds this
compressed text to Section 5.2. I am fine with introducing this
editorial change.

Does anyone have any objections? If not, I would ask Roy to update
before submission.

Regards,
matthias

Suggested changes:
- remove 10.1
- Expand 5.2 to explain rationale of explicit user choice:

ammend text 5.2:
----5.2 NEW --
A user agent MUST NOT generate a DNT header field if the user's tracking
preference is not enabled.

NOTE: This specification defines a protocol for truthfully communicating
the user's tracking preference. Sites are only likely to respect this
choice if the site can trust that the signal has been deliberately and
knowingly set by an actual user. Behavior absent an explicit preference
by a user is not determined by this recommendation.

old text 5.2: A user agent MUST NOT generate a DNT header field if the
user's tracking preference is not enabled.
