The ability to log pings according to session data would be important
to me.  That can be done without cookies, but not very conveniently.
I guess the same applies to authentication headers, though I rarely
use them.  But yes, relating a ping back to a specific user is useful.

Since cookies and authentication headers are something I can do
without @ping, I think it would be a necessary feature to compel me to
use @ping.
