I'd like to chirp up on Dave's point: proxy cookies are very useful for proxy 
apps which *do* transform content. Which language, for a language-translator; 
which-profile for a content-filtering scheme, and so on. One current 
work-around is proxy-authentication (e.g. Lucent's anonymizer), but cookies, 
now that we have them, seem like a better solution. 

A whole bunch of examples of "active proxies" are in this paper:
