Tracking can be a tricky problem because it occurs at many layers in a
typical stack. It starts when the first TCP SYN is sent. If browsers
use an underlying transport like TCP/IP, should something be said
about it (ie., its in scope or out of scope)?

ETAGS were not mentioned in the document. In the context of the PING
working group, I would expect to see a treatment.
