If the site uses piwik, you will be tracked when you use MSIE10. I can say that for 100% because I looked it up earlier today. A pair of from-the-horse's-mouth links are next door [webmasterworld.com] ;)
I've yet to find an explanation of what the ### Apache is supposed to do about the header, though-- short of outright not logging visits, which would cross the line from protecting privacy to falsifying information.

Thanks Lucy, I've read those links, and a bit more around the web, and from what I can see this is a little like robots.txt - no-one is under any obligation (yet) to honour a DNT request.
I still can't find any information about whether Google Analytics honours DNT. There is a browser plugin to opt out of Analytics: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout - but that's all I can find. No announcement either way gives me the feeling that they're keeping quiet on this because they won't (honour it).

My [completely uneducated] thought was that DNT was primarily about advertisers not tracking someone across multiple sites. The sort of thing where you search for blue widgets on one site, and then for the next month see adverts for blue widgets on all other sites. I never thought analytics would have been affected.
