tracking-ISSUE-201: Caching of user-granted exceptions and interplay with  out of band consent [Tracking Preference Expression (DNT)]

http://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/track/issues/201

Raised by: Rob van Eijk
On product: Tracking Preference Expression (DNT)

Sites can use User-granted exceptions (UGE) as well as out-of-band consent (OOBC) to get relief from the constraints of the compliance spec.

Questions discussed here are:
- To what extent can UGE be cached, i.e., stored server-side and passed on
- What is the right inter-play between UGE and OOBC

Concerns that were raised so far:
- Servers need to cache and pass on UGE
- Users who remove a UGE will expect that the resulting DNT;1 is expected
  (unless there is a new notice explaining otherwise)
- USers would ideally prefer to "see" all consent/exceptions as part of their UA
  to have full control and transparency
