it is interesting how deep GDPR is now in everbody's mind, but back then
the EU had a Directive that was implemented by member states in subtly
(or not so) different ways, so the opinions could, much more legitimately
than today, well differ.

NSEC3 was also inspired by the proposal of the "NO RR" that dates back
to at least as early as the year 2000.
