> In rich-client applications (Ajax, Flex, etc), it is more secure to have the rich-client
framework explicitly send the session ID back to the server with every request in its native/encrypted
format, rather than via cookies, which are more susceptible to man-in-the-middle attacks.
 GWT works this way as well.
> Make it a configuration possibility to disable cookies entirely, supporting this rich-client-over-http
