Hi Jonathan,


I discussed the newish model with Nick and Shane and IMHO they are both 
OK with it if we ensure that the following is spelled out in the spec:
- User agents MAY notify users of stored exceptions
- User agents MAY confirm exceptions with users before enacting them 
(e.g., before storing them into the DB)
- User agents MAY at any time adjust stored exceptions to reflect 
potentially changed user preferences

We discussed whether any of those should be worded as a "SHOULD" and 
Nick's point was that
he believes that a MAY may be OK since browsers (who usually defend 
their users) will implement effective measures
if they deem the risk of sites storing inappropriate exceptions high 
enough.

Nevertheless, I will see what other arguments will be raised this week 
(or in response to this message).


Regards,
matthias
