Not that it really matters that much in the long run because DNT will never hit off unless forced by law, but I'm glad I'm not using any Yahoo services.
It will probably come down to that eventually.

Don't underestimate the power of the anti-DNT lobby
Unless you (the FTC) publicly support us and allow us to do as we please, we'll completely disregard Do Not Track and do as we please anyway, and then we'll use our influence higher up to gut what little authority you do have.
This. DNT was doomed from the start for this very reason.
