The text was added in part as a resolution of a dispute over CSP privacy issues.

It seems that the technical issues have not been solved, and the UA vendors have not followed though with the commitments made, and this changes the landscape so I reopen the dispute.

I would like the CSP to be amended to note that the sending of CSP reports is optional in a conforming implementation and that the UA should expect a website to supply a useful CSP that does not depend on the website implementing an overly broad CSP and analyzing the reports.
