Cookies: unverifiable transactions

The next thing the cookie implementation requires is support for 
unverifiable transactions (RFC2109:$4.3.5). This is somewhat difficult 
given the way fetches are currently handled; ideally, the cookie stuff 
would know:

   a) what spawned the fetch (simple enough - it already gets the referer)
   b) what cookies (if any) the parent fetch set.

The second of these is rather difficult to provide. Has anyone got any 
thoughts on how this might be handled?
