Doesn't it make sense to share the HSTS database globally ? It is basically 
global data (domain specific) and not user specific.

Thinking forward, a central (trusted) database/daemon for HSTS entries would 
be nice - sooner or later almost any domain supports HSTS. Each process 
loading/saving a huge file would not be efficient.

Same goes for e.g. cert pinning (but not for cookies which are private data).
