If SVN cooperates with me, expect more in the future. I'm getting 
irritated by certain pages which seem to confuse people often. :)

That phrasing is fine by me.

I've made a slight change to your wording, as I found almost the same 
flaw in your wording as was in mine. Hopefully, this is far clearer 
than what I started with. Thank you for your editing, here. :)

Fine by me, I just worry that the docs don't get updated for 7 or 8 
years and end-users start quoting this document as the reason they 
believe that browsers still don't support modern cookies. One can't 
expect J. Random User to go check version control to see when "the time 
of writing" was...

Anyhow, a new patch is attached. Practically the same as your last one. :)
