The API operation, and the decision on whether a recorded exception applies in this case (i.e. the decision on what DNT header to send), both need to have a model that achieves this.

Unless you enumerate the hosts somehow, but that still does not allow
you to get around a publicsuffix.org dependency... I'm surprised we
even want such an API.
