​But that's how you update cookies. Doesn't matter if it's in a single
request, or subsequently; sending set-cookie with the same name (and other
attributes) and a new value overwrites the old cookie.

In this case it's just confirming that "domain=.example.org" is treated the
same as "domain=example.org"

(Before I should have said: that seems to be how Chrome treats it, since
httpbin.org isn't storing any state)
