My point in the initial email to Martin was that the language seems to provide for companies to share Connection ID data, or data derived from it, with third parties -  so long as the companies have legal contracts defining that they are cooperating. That doesn't seem, to me at least, to be a good idea when a bit of more precise use of language (such as the regular expression above by Martin, with a modification to allow for load-balancers, as rightly pointed out) could very easily nip it in the butt, as it were. :)
