What if Novice users had things managed for them?  In the GET/POST
case, chances are they don't know what's what and just want the thing
to work, and chances are, switching to GET will make it work.  I think
something similar could be worked out for cookies and other
situations.  Novice users could go along merrily, and move up after
finding out what they're missing, or find out after moving up.
