I consider this technically impossible. How would you store the opt-out 
information? You are not allowed to store any information on the client 
and you cannot store it server side either because you cannot identify 
the client that the server side information belongs to.

Also consider this OptIn Scenario:

User calls website. Website sees new user and asks: Do you want a 
cookie? User says no. User proceeds to the next page. Website sees a new 
user and aks: Do you want a cookie?

Not very practical..
