No, you've not. Usually, continuation is valid only for a particular 
page, and you can return to some other continuation. But I can imagine 
situation when flow is connected to some stateful app, where you can't 
go back to previous continuation. In such rare cases, it will make sense 
to have continuation in a cookie. But this is not helpful for generic app.
