Kevin, 

part of your scenario is overcomplicating things language-wise. A third 
party with an exception receives DNT;0, right? So both third party cases are 
the same.

The benefit is a working exception system worldwide, even for chains that 
can't be predicted. IMHO this is huge and the limitations and complications 
are small. 

And if you want to do business as usual and add stuff to your profile, get a 
direct DNT;0 signal, get a web-wide exception for your service or some out 
of band consent.
