Helllo @youennf :

Not sure I follow the above messages.

#598 seems to have concluded that no change is needed, and I don't see anything in the spec at all about double keying anything.  "the spec is not forbidding [the fix] but is not enforcing it either" is not a solution to the problem introduced by the spec :) 

Re: "FWIW, that is what is implemented in Safari." Great!  If this is the correct solution to the privacy harm introduced by the spec, it needs to be in the spec though.  Its not sufficient to clearly define the privacy harming behavior in the spec, but leave the mitigations vague and unspecified.

I don't understanding how #549 mitigates tracking.  Would you mind explaining further?
