OK, if you control the server you could do that. (Though of course the client app’s HTTP
framework could drop the cookie at any time; that’s within spec.) 

But I’m not sure what your point is. You can’t code a client app without considering credentials.
The cookie has to come from somewhere, so the app has to be able to log in. What is it going
to save you to store a cookie?

Anyway, no, TouchDB does not support logging in using _session, except as a side effect of
using BrowserID. If you think it really needs to, the code is open source so you’re welcome
to add that feature.
