The specification has the following regarding this:

    If the user agent supports HTTP State Mangement
    [RFC2109][RFC2965] it should persist, discard
    and send cookies (as received in the Set-Cookie
    and Set-Cookie2 response headers, and sent in
    the Cookie header) as applicable.

... and the specification has HTTP in its name. I think it's clear enough  
and the WG agrees, fwiw.
