Looking further into this the domain validation makes it little more stricter and can have wider implications. For example requests library uses cookiejar to maintain cookies between sessions. One more case is that `domain` can be empty so only non-empty domains can be prefixed with dot.

A simple server that sets Cookie with value `A=LDJDSFLKSDJLDSF`

import SimpleHTTPServer
import logging

class MyHTTPRequestHandler(SimpleHTTPServer.SimpleHTTPRequestHandler):
    def do_GET(self):
        self.cookieHeader = self.headers.get('Cookie')
        SimpleHTTPServer.SimpleHTTPRequestHandler.do_GET(self)

    def end_headers(self):
        self.send_my_headers()
        SimpleHTTPServer.SimpleHTTPRequestHandler.end_headers(self)

    def send_my_headers(self):
        self.send_header('Set-Cookie', 'A=LDJDSFLKSDJLDSF')

if __name__ == '__main__':
    SimpleHTTPServer.test(HandlerClass=MyHTTPRequestHandler)


Add below host entry to `/etc/hosts` 

127.0.0.1 test.com
127.0.0.1 1.test.com
127.0.0.1 footest.com


Sample script to demonstrate requests behavior change

import requests

with requests.Session() as s:
    cookies = dict(cookies_are='working')
    m = s.get("http://test.com:8000", cookies=cookies)
    print(m.request.headers)
    m = s.get("http://1.test.com:8000", cookies=cookies)
    print(m.request.headers)
    m = s.get("http://footest.com:8000", cookies=cookies)
    print(m.request.headers)


Before patch : 


{'User-Agent': 'python-requests/2.11.1', 'Accept-Encoding': 'gzip, deflate', 'Accept': '*/*', 'Connection': 'keep-alive', 'Cookie': 'cookies_are=working'}
{'User-Agent': 'python-requests/2.11.1', 'Accept-Encoding': 'gzip, deflate', 'Accept': '*/*', 'Connection': 'keep-alive', 'Cookie': 'A=LDJDSFLKSDJLDSF; cookies_are=working'}
{'User-Agent': 'python-requests/2.11.1', 'Accept-Encoding': 'gzip, deflate', 'Accept': '*/*', 'Connection': 'keep-alive', 'Cookie': 'A=LDJDSFLKSDJLDSF; cookies_are=working'}

After patch :


{'User-Agent': 'python-requests/2.11.1', 'Accept-Encoding': 'gzip, deflate', 'Accept': '*/*', 'Connection': 'keep-alive', 'Cookie': 'cookies_are=working'}
{'User-Agent': 'python-requests/2.11.1', 'Accept-Encoding': 'gzip, deflate', 'Accept': '*/*', 'Connection': 'keep-alive', 'Cookie': 'A=LDJDSFLKSDJLDSF; cookies_are=working'}
{'User-Agent': 'python-requests/2.11.1', 'Accept-Encoding': 'gzip, deflate', 'Accept': '*/*', 'Connection': 'keep-alive', 'Cookie': 'cookies_are=working'}


As with my patch since the cookie is set on `test.com` while making a request to `footest.com` the cookie is skipped as part of the patch since footest is not a subdomain of test.com but 1.test.com is a subdomain. This is a behavior change to be decided whether worth doing or to document this since in a client with session like requests module connecting to lot of hosts this can potentially pass cookies of test.com to footest.com. A discussion on requests repo on providing the option for user to set a stricter cookie policy : https://github.com/requests/requests/issues/2576

On testing with curl cookie-jar it seems that the cookies are passed even for the subdomain only when it's set and not as part of top level domain.
