It's interesting to see that FSF fails this test themselves.  They're
using a third party DNS service for one of their DNS servers (FSF
France, which is a sister organisation of the FSF, hence a third party.)

I think such a requirement, when treated as written is entirely too
strict.  It disallows the use of best-practices technologies like CDNs.

(They also fail the second part of B1, since they're using tracking tags
in pages by way of using piwik, as well as using ETags, whose principal
usage today is tracking.)
