Not long ago I published a paper which makes some observations about
the state of security in web session management and proposes some
small changes in browsers.  Someone suggested I post it here for
comments. See:

I'm currently most interested in feedback on the proposed change in
401 behavior vs the possible header addition for log outs.  I realize
the WHATWG may not mess with stuff at the HTTP level much, but I
definitely welcome any comments.
