I don’t dare to make predictions, but that’s what I’d hope too.
However, there are two sides to this: one is official law enforcement. Another, however, is internal compliance procedures, especially in public administrations (perhaps most relevant here: universities, but also, say, city administrations, for example): in my experience, these organizations will be annoyingly cautious in making sure they don’t do anything wrong because nobody wants to be the one responsible in case something goes wrong. In this internal compliance process especially, where it would help tremendously to be able to point decision-makers to some site setting called “enforce active consent to data processing” or something like that.
In a way, there is a chance for discourse establishing “common practice” and thereby influence how the law is interpreted.
I don’t think it’s a simple as that. On dicourse you can’t simply remove a user from the database…
