Related notes:

Concerns raise were:
- The thirdparties actually used are known by the browser anyway
- How do we populate and manage the list for the site?
- What useful actions can user agents do with this data? (If we do not see how it can be used, may may choose not to transmit it).
- Transmitting this information is important for compliance
