[Bug 8822] should make cookie setting dependent on whether the document has a URL, not on whether it has a browsing context; and should fail silently (set does nothing, get returns "") when there isn't one.

XMLHttpRequest returns the empty string for cookie but only for non same-origin
documents. It should always return the empty string however because we also
disallow access to Cookie headers. And setting should just be ignored.

I would prefer it if HTML5 could define this so all .cookie information is
