The only thing web masters have to do is to claim that all their cookies are "necessary for the functioning of the website" and "not tracking cookies". Isn't that a huge loophole?

The wording of the law is "strictly necessary", and is from the point of view of the consumer, not the website owner. Even in the case of affiliate marketing where the referring site doesn't get paid unless a cookie is set, you can't argue that a tracking cookie is strictly necessary because in that instance the consumer's experience is the same whether the cookie is set or not.
