To a large extent, this overlaps with token binding.   If you do a authentication with the token binding extension you can then token bind a cookie, or otherwise record the token binding ID and check the header on subsequent requests.   I understand that token binding is not available on all platforms at the moment.  However, I think that is a better way to go than creating a new method of doing super cookies.
