I fought for us to leave out the sorting from the spec since I believe it is 
wrong and never what was intended. But I "lost" and that sorting is now in the 
cookie RFC.

Clearly there are enough big sites out there that depend on the sorting so it 
won't be easy to just silently remove it. And all browsers sort them already. 
But I also think that cookies are usually sent from browers to the server in a 
single header.
