I'm think I need a compact privacy policy here but I'm not entirely sure (nor am I too clear on how to create one) but I have 3 domains pointing to one website and would prefer the 3 of them to share the same cookie rather than putting the members through the inconvenience of having to log in again if they happen visit the site through a different domain. For each domain, the cookie would need to be accessible from domain.tld as well as www.domain.tld.

I've explored this too a while ago (so set the same cookie for oxle.nl and oxle.com (and the www versions), and indeed, a CPC was what I found out for that.
Without CPC, but with PHP this may help you out: http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=187814

Got around the subdomains with the following line, which I should've known:
response.cookies("cookie").domain="."&replace(request.servervariables("server_name"),"www.","")
After some more research it doesn't look like there's an easy way to share cookies across domains without using some complex and ugly hacks.

Makes sense too, cookies are meant to be domain specific...

could open some ugly security problems if you were allowed to write cookies for one domain while in another, probably much better to have a generic redirect so if they come in via one domain you redirect and send them to the right domain
