Chrome intends to ship initial implementations of both of these drafts in
~49 (~April, 2016).

2) Your support for these specifications (or lack thereof).

I think they're pretty solid, and look forward to polishing them up with
the help of folks in this forum.

I think https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-west-origin-cookies-01 is more or
less completely obviated by cookie prefixes. I've let it expire, and don't
intend to pick it back up.

I think https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-west-first-party-cookies is still
worth experimenting with, and have 90% of an implementation in Chrome
behind a flag. I wouldn't want to hold up progress on the two drafts you've
highlighted above, but I do think the notion is worth exploring.
