Ian, 

you said, "if I do not respond, I'm not on the hook". 

This is something else then saying: "I will never ever accept any 
token from UA string IE". 

And to trigger an exception is actually a good test. I still believe 
that we should arrive in the 21th century. That means we have to 
start thinking about what it makes a HECK less hard for a third 
party to trigger an exception. 

If this is all about revenue and not about technology and users, you 
could negotiate every cookie directly with the FTC or the 
Commission.

But I hope I can tease you to better technology. So how can we make 
exceptions easier? You say it's hard. Why? Because of the origin 
constraints?
