    The only cookie which actually needed to be protected was the session cookie addressed
in ACCUMULO-4676. All of these cookies are simple user UI preferences (table column sort order,
etc.) and it doesn't matter if they are manipulated in client-side javascript. Are we certain
we're not manipulating them in client-side javascript now? If we are, this will break that.
