It's not clear to me that HTML is the right place for a solution for this. For
instance, whatever solution we used you'd still want to be able to control
whether images or fonts in a style sheet had cookies or not, you'd still want
to be able to control what happened to resources imported by scripts (including
those without underlying DOM nodes, like Worker and EventSource objects), and
you'd want it to cover a whole raft of features even just within HTML, like
<video src>, <source>, <object>, <iframe>, etc.

My recommendation at this stage would be to approach browser vendors and
encourage them to experiment with different ideas for addressing this, so that
we gain implementation experience.
