Thanks so much for the quick response - and that's great, it could save us a lot effort.

What are the dependencies? Would you be willing to look at a couple of compact policies to see if you see any problems?

In theory, yes, but it depends on what exactly is in your
compact policy.

require them?

the user to manage that cookie. So, would it be acceptable to set a policy
everywhere that encompassed all the information in those two cookies, and to
_not_ provide any opt- mechanism when setting anon-cookie?
