(Whiteboard: u=mozdev p=0 c=Platform)

per https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=178993#c142 and https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=178993#c143, we should have some docs on how the mozilla impl of cookies works, the various attributes, how we differ from rfc2109 etc. i can probably write up most of the guts of this, but i don't have time to fully proof it or provide examples (if required) etc. will need some help here.
That's fine -- if you can write something up, I'll fluff it out.
Would it be beneficial to mention getters and setters?
HTMLDocument.prototype.__defineGetter__( "cookie", function(){return "";} );
HTMLDocument.prototype.__defineSetter__( "cookie", function(){} );
We now have documentation of the various interfaces associated with cookies, but could use some more friendly how-to type documentation for cookies.  It would be nice if someone would write something up.
