List Targeting - cookies and localStorage

Status: Great Idea!

A couple of improvements for ListTargeting:


1- value in a cookie (vs value of a cookie)

-- cookies are a valuable commodity - we cannot arbitrarily create new ones whenever we want, so instead I've started storing valuable information inside of a JSON formatted cookie.  In the following example, I'd like List Targeting to be able to detect "ABC123" inside the cookie where the contents are:


{"email_id":"ABC123","search_term":"polo (mens)"}

2- use localStorage and sessionStorage

-- similar to the above... I'd like to look for a value inside of localStorage or sessionStorage


window.localStorage.eid = 'ABC123'

This would drastically improve the flexibility of using List Targeting.
