Hi Folks,

below you find the current proposal how to indicate exceptions to a site.

However, I believe that
 - we first need to resolve whether we allow explicit-explicit exception
 - once we know the possible exceptions, we should revisit ISSUE-111

As a consequence, I'll postpone ISSUE-111 and indicate a corresponding


A proposed summary text for DNT values to signal site-specific preferences:
1 = no known exceptions for you
0 = You have an exeption (sent to 1st or 3rd parties) and semantics
1st: You have an exeption but there is no "*" exception
[You may poll for details]
3rd: You either have a web-wide exception or your
1st party got you exempted.
2 = "*" site-wide exception (sent to 1st party saying that all its
third parties are exempted)

Note that this text assumes that explicit-explicit exception pairs are
part of the API.
