Well, Joe and Jane Sixpack will feel safer by using DNT, I think that's enough. Englightened people know that this is just a joke.

It seriously reminds me of the evil bit . There *has* to be some measure of tracking in pretty much any non-trivial web app, especially those dealing with financial transactions. At that point, the DNT header pretty much means "please don't do anything bad with the information that you're collecting". And we all know that sites can always be trusted to do that...
