Cookies are set for the domain content was fetched from, but included content makes the distinction irrelevant. This is indeed what I meant by third-party cookies: cookies set by third-party content.
I don't suggest breaking the web by refusing third-party content. Just that a cookie set on domain D via inclusion on domain A should not be the same as a cookie set on domain D via inclusion on domain B. As far as cookies are concerned, this should be enough to restore privacy.
