Matthias: we need to discuss this issue.
17:35:29 [NinjaMarnau]
... we could solve this by one of this overwriting the other
17:35:31 [schunter]
This proposal: Header is binding and URL only offers additional (refining) info.
17:35:48 [schunter]
In this scheme, it would be weird if the explanation undoes/contradicts the header.
17:36:04 [aleecia]
Wait, you can have dynamic content in a URL
17:36:12 [aleecia]
URL stays the same. Content changes.
17:36:19 [schunter]
good point.

ksmith: concerns about the complexity of letters and numbers. I suggest a more simple code method
17:37:41 [karl]
lowercase/uppercase is a syntax issue.
17:38:11 [NinjaMarnau]
... first charcter should be just true or false. easy to read
17:38:33 [karl]
they should be changed, but that is orthogonal to their meaning.
17:39:09 [dsinger]
let's argue about what information is conveyed, and then design the best header to convey it. can I suggest that we not bike-shed the compression now? I agree it's over-compact, but...
17:39:17 [schunter]
17:39:36 [NinjaMarnau]
Matthias: first let us focus on content. it is a valid concern but first content, then coding
17:40:36 [NinjaMarnau]
Clay: from a performance pov - a dynamic response header might be prohibitive
17:40:44 [WileyS]
17:40:50 [karl]
this seems to encourage servers to go a simpler way: which is yes we track, no we do not track anything.

WileyS: extensive chain on deciding on 1./3. - each party should be able to determine in what role they act. Many possible techniques to arrive at this conclusion. Companies should be able to determine this in most circumstances

Thinking of the 100M active (500M total) websites. Most of those aren't operated by their "owners".
17:46:58 [aleecia]
What I'm hearing: need for examples section in the proposed text to clarify this
17:47:06 [schunter]
17:47:28 [NinjaMarnau]
dwainberg: if several servers operated by one party are asked, they might give contradicting information.
17:48:05 [schunter]
17:48:07 [NinjaMarnau]
tl: it is not contradicting but fine grained. the servers can act independently/differently
17:48:17 [fielding]
I don't see a need for 1st/3rd party distinction since the browser knows what kind of request has been made and just needs to know if the server is allowing cross-site tracking or not.
17:48:55 [tl]
fielding, but the server's response allows the browser to check that the server know's what's up
17:49:12 [karl]
17:49:27 [aleecia]
I'm not convinced the browser knows 1st v 3rd
17:50:05 [schunter]
17:50:06 [dwainberg]
or that the browser's version of 1st vs 3rd is different from ours
17:50:07 [karl]
the browser doesn't know for sure. and a server doesn't know if it is a 1st or a 3rd either
17:50:07 [NinjaMarnau]
fielding: if the server answers I respect your dnt, but I track you, it is immanent that the entity has an exception
17:50:17 [fielding]
aleecia, it doesn't need to know
17:50:21 [schunter]

17:50:36 [aleecia]
Ok, I'm not understanding you - that's good :-)
17:50:58 [NinjaMarnau]

17:51:00 [schunter]
you = matthias/
17:51:24 [dsriedel]
Do we ignore in this discussion how the browser actually treats all the answers from all involved servers/parties in the actual displayed website? I do not see this in the document but also do not know whether this is a concern in this working group. But the feasability of implementation might be a concern?

If the server says it is compliant, *why* it is still tracking is not a browser concern. Only the fact that it is tracking matters.
17:53:40 [Zakim]
17:53:46 [rvaneijk]
@Roy, if the server says is is compliant, a user might want to know if that is based on opt (back) in or not.

17:56:33 [Zakim]
17:56:53 [schunter]
17:57:04 [NinjaMarnau]
... this diversifies the possible answers even more. Opt-back-in might be just one more exception
17:58:49 [schunter]
17:59:03 [NinjaMarnau]
tl: opt-back-in is user specific. therefore, the opt-back-in in a well known URL is not in a good position. It should be highlighted via the response header.

(jkaran summarized: The DAA program requires networks and BT companies to allow users to opt out of collection. By default, in the US, collection/usage is turned on. When this occurs, an opt out cookie is placed on the user's browser. If the cookie is removed (through clearing cookies or through opting in), then the user just has their opt out cookie removed.They are then, by default opted in)
