I agree about being explicit...

I think the design choice between using cookies and using URI annotations
(query parameters or fragment identifiers or path or even server parts
of the identifier) should be, in the best designs, that the URI annotations
identify those elements of the application state that make sense to
save and restore at a later time, or to communicate to a third party.

Does that make sense?

Perhaps!  But how is the state indicated?  Either the URL changes or there is some other
information such as cookies.  We need to be explicit about this.


All the best, Ashok
