It is more and more rare that you get one cookie for each feature of the site. Now there is one cookie for all features on one domain for performance reasons. 

There is also no common vocabulary across cookies, which makes it impossible to know what does values in cookies.

And finally a cookie is often obfuscated with a simple code with no readable separate values. It is more and more a token.
