The idea we had was that apps could store a token (not necessarily in 
a cookie) and come back later (possibly much later) and find the same 
device at the same token. Any expiry at all works against that.
The way we implemented it, we have a single per-origin "cookie" (not 
very expensive), which we hash together with a stable identifier for 
the device to produce a device ID that is unique and persistent. The 
"cookie" gets cleared together with "clear cookies for this domain".

I think this makes sense for us, but YMMV.
