Just because everyone does it and wants it, it doesn't mean that it is
suddenly a good idea.

It might end up being a necessary idea, but don't mistake necessary
for good or for compatible with the architecture of HTTP.  If
something like this happens, the goal should be to minimize

All this looks like so far is a constrained syntax Cookie, which is
far less useful than a Cookie and so I see no reason for it to be used
over a Cookie, which you will have to support anyway...
