if you look at the description, the tests are all about detecting
alterations to the requested web page.

what they are looking for is ads injected by the ISP while you view an
arbitary page.

AFAICT the Phorm stuff doesnt do that - it inject cookies and then hoovers
them up later, so it can tell companies who buy into the OIX system which
ads to send to you - but only when you visit their sites.

So - not sure this helps with Phorm....

No that's wrong. What they are looking for are changes to the pages html.

For example when I have privoxy "on" they detect changes but no adverts
have been served by anyone. What they have detected are just a bunch of
css style sheets which I have privoxy insert.

That's right.
