tracking-ISSUE-171: How can the exception API be used to grant site-wide exceptions to  multiple sites? [Tracking Preference Expression (DNT)]

http://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/track/issues/171

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

Scenario: A company has many sites and would like to provide exceptions for all its sites. Assuming site1.com, site2.com all belong to brand.com

Scenario:
- A user visits site1.com
- The site redirects to privacy.brand.com
- privacy.brand.com aims at obtaining exceptions for 
   *.site1.com
   *.site2.com
   *.brand.com
  as user-friendly as possible

Today, the origin-binding means that this would require 3 API calls (one for each site). The goal of this issue is to provide a single interaction to resolve this problem.
