They're really only asking what people think of
when they read the words
"Do Not Track". I'd be more interested in knowing what people expect when
then look at their particular browser setting and what it is they actually
hope it will accomplish.
While it's true that there is ambiguity about what users are objecting to
when they turn on DNT (3rd party tracking? behavioral tracking? all data
collection?), the costs of getting it wrong not symmetrical. If I object to
all forms of data collection, and you collect data about me anyway, I'd be
pretty upset. But if I'm OK with certain forms of data collection, and you
decline to collect data about me.. meh.
