It is possible for ASP-based sites or nph-style CGI scripts to
do all sorts of nasty things.  However, they are just bugs and
should be treated as such.

It would be nice if we had a list of all the places that
identifiers are input or stored in a common browser, though
most of these are implementation-specific (it really does not
matter for interoperability how a browser stores identifiers
for its bookmark list, so we should not restrict legitimate
experiments in implementation efficiency).
