I guess it may be that you visit e.g. FootScroll and get a webwide exception, and then their ‘lake’ button on other sites get DNT:0.  But again, they also get (or not) the cookie, and know whether to take DNT:0 seriously.  If the user never visits footscroll again, sure, the exception can’t be reconfirmed, but if the user never visits you, why care?

this is wrong. apologies. the cookie only goes back to the requester.
