You can't expect *any* session management system to work in
a reliable way without those rules. That's simple, basic, and
fairly easy to grok logic. The consequences of an app ignoring
this could be far more damaging than those of a user willingly
and knowingly keeping some data 'external'. And they will hit
the average user who doesn't even think about doing such things
and who expects his SM to just work.
Taking these rules into account is no big deal anyway. At least
not if your app has a clean control structure.
Again, the fact that the designer(s) of NSM have clearly stated
these rules is a sign that he/she/they know what is involved, and
has/have the courage to say this instead of going 'the easy way'.
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
