While it is true that tracking users on the server side is technically possible as you suggest, please note that it is now _illegal_ to do so on  EU citizens _without their explicit consent_  (thanks to GDPR). So I don't think your argument that "the server can track this anyway" holds because most sites don't have that consent.
