Global Privacy Control

This "do not sell my personal information" spec is not implemented in any mainstream browser (yet?). But apparently several notable privacy extensions are now implementing this. Is it a good idea to use this in an extension yet? Or is it more likely to just add entropy to the browser fingerprint and make user more trackable at this stage?
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
