"Then each site could track what I am doing on the site itself, but not my browsing habits elsewhere."

But what if the two sites KNOW each other...or partner with someone who knows them both AND has second- or even first-party relationships with both of them, meaning their tracking tech looks no different from first-party tracking?

Basic point is, this whole shell game will eventually become server-side user tracking tracking which no user will be able to block, even with masquerading. Then it'll be a matter of, "Stop the Internet! I wanna get off!"
