ISSUE-119: Specify "not tracking" or "None"

Specify "not tracking" or "None"

Tracking Preference Expression (DNT)

Description:
Note change proposal: http://www.w3.org/wiki/Privacy/TPWG/Change_Proposal_No_Tracking

The spec only defines a few standards of tracking, but doesn't have a specification for "not tracking at all". There are some sites which would like to be able to say not just "I meet the 3rd part definintion", but "I don't do any tracking at all". Let's create a specification for "absolutely not tracking" so that sites which want to meet this really high standard have a clear bar to point to.

Related notes:

During issue cleanup, marked pending review stable. (Under current TPE, there is an "N" response value, but no need for a separate absolutely-not definition.)

Nick Doty, 29 May 2013, 02:15:47

This has been satisfied by the decision on ISSUE-5.
