Hi Nick, Ian,

It is maybe a bit out of place to mention, but the point you raise on 
the mix of advertisers that received opt-out cookies or not brings back 
the short discussion I had with Travis on his auto-opt out solution for 
the whole dynamic ad-chain. To me it reads (site/*) for opt-outs. (See 
the thread 'DNT ad tag solution').

Isn't there anything in the passing-mechanism we can re-use for exceptions?

Hope this thought helps,
