To clarify, when we create persistent state in a browser, then it 
should persist in the same timescale as all other persistent state. To
 do otherwise creates a very uncertain platform upon which to build 
apps. 

Doing otherwise has zero privacy impact to most users. Those with 
irregular cookie policies should get matching behaviour. That is: if a
 cookie goes, so do the IDs.

Do I have to include an explicit "if the browser feels like it, it can
 delete identifiers" …  would that make people happier? That is always
 true, but I could write it down.
