I agree that more thought would need to go into all the possible resource
requests which would benefit from this type of functionality.

But it still seems like having `rel` as an attribute for all those different
containers, with a value that said "suppress cookies", would be sufficient. If
any of those containers don't yet support the `rel` attribute, it wouldn't seem
too onerous to extend rel to those containers.

Even if we're discussing sub-requests (like a script loads more scripts), those
requests are always done via dynamically creating one of the containers in
question, in which case setting the `rel` property should suffice, right?

I think the only other concern would be if XHR requests should support a way to
suppress in the same way, and I think that it should. I'm not sure `rel` for
XHR would make much sense, but perhaps something like "sendCookies" or
whatever.
