First off, thanks a mill for this! =)

I'd prefer "will not allow cookies to be set", rather than "will
disallow" -  if you want to keep disallow, you'll have to change the
wording a little - "will disallow cookies from being [...]"

I had to read this several times before I understood what it meant. It's
definitely a useful piece of info to have in the docs, but perhaps we
could rephrase it a bit. My patch is attached, let me know if it's any
clearer, or if I've just been staring at this so long that I get it now =)

I've also changed this to "At the time of writing" - if these docs don't
get updated for another seven or eight years, at least then the reader
has to dig back to see how old and crufty they are, rather than having
it printed there before them =)
