I wonder whether DNT makes any sense at all (or is just a giant fake) and  
it wouldn't be better to tell ppl. how to add sth like

to /etc/hosts (does anybody know who ships the _unam, __csv & __switchTo5x  

Otherwise i guess a cookie filter by cookie name would be faaar more  
powerful than DNT or the domain based cookie.
