Not really.  You still have the sentence "User agents should present
the persistent storage feature to the user in a way that associates
them strongly with HTTP session cookies.", which IMO recommends an
overly specific and rather questionable UI.  It would be okay as an
example of how UAs might present it, but "should" seems too strong to
me.  But it doesn't really matter.
