tracking-ISSUE-187: What is the right approach to exception handling? [Tracking Preference Expression (DNT)]

http://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/track/issues/187

Raised by: Matthias Schunter
On product: Tracking Preference Expression (DNT)

Currently two approaches are under discussion:
"OLD": Site asks user agent for exception; user agent asks user and responds
      (UA is responsible to ensure that exceptions reflect user preferences)
"NEW": Site asks user for their preference and stores this in user agent.   
       User agent may double-check that this indeed matches preference but 
       is not obliged to do so.
