A variety of reasons, really, but nothing that's likely to sway any
opinions ;-) ... by far the more important thing is: IF session-based
routing continues to be a "feature", we should do what we can to break to
reliance on cookies (as much as possible anyway). If, however, the general
movement is (quite thankfully) away from session-based routing, then
beautiful, I'm happy.
