ISSUE-160: Do we need an API that will tell a host what its current exception status is?

except-query

Do we need an API that will tell a host what its current exception status is?

State:
CLOSED
Product:
Tracking Preference Expression (DNT)
Raised by:
David Singer
Opened on:
2012-08-09
Description:
It might be useful, and 'complete the model', if we had a JS API that told a host what its current exception status is in a given context. Specifically, an API

myHeader = QueryExceptionStatus();

which examines the *document origin* of the script, the current *top-level domain* and returns:
* an empty string if no DNT header would be sent to that document origin
* the exact DNT header (DNT:1 or DNT:0) that would be sent

there is now a proposed API in the document

In the spec and no objections received; thus closing this issue.
