... and in the current implementation they should be tried in the order
they are received from the client. Although I didn't find anything in
the SPEC which mandates or suggests that.

If all fail, request.getRequestedSessionId() should return the value of
the last cookie, i.e. the least specific. "Should" in the sense that's
what I expect from current TC 6.0.x code, not in the sense of being the
best choice.
