over TCP/IP this isn't true, since by definition being on the same 
connection means having the same peer, and therefore sharing the same 
client IP:port, and (in practice) credentials.

Or do you mean by common attributes only aspects encapsulated in an HTTP 
request message itself (e.g. things learned from headers etc)?
