IMO. anything that requires a cookie is a bug. If this is a preference, 
it should be saved on the server, not the client. As well as the reasons 
already addressed, and the fact that cookies are completely contrary to 
the web architecture, there's an additional practical problem here for 
those of us who use WordPress from multiple machines, including public 
one.  Any state stored on the client will be lost as I move between 
machines, which I do regularly.
