ISSUE-159: How do we allow sites that mash-in ad-supported content to maintain their own 'trusted third parties'?

mashing

How do we allow sites that mash-in ad-supported content to maintain their own 'trusted third parties'?

State:
POSTPONED
Product:
Tracking Preference Expression (DNT)
Raised by:
David Singer
Opened on:
2012-08-09
Description:
Imagine a site A that is (a) ad-supported and (b) mashes in content from site X that is, in turn, ad-supported. Say in turn that the user has granted a site-specific exception for X, but not A. When visiting A, X's third parties will not, under today's model, get their DNT:0.

The problem is that it looks, on the face of it, impossible to distinguish iFrames that represent mashed content and that should start a new context, from iFrames that are being used to embed and maybe 'sandbox' ads, and that should not.

Proposal: we punt on this corner case for the first version of the spec.

We suggest to tackle this complex issue not in our first version. In future releases, we may revisit this issue.
