I can see an argument here.

That cookies are required for sessions to work is a feature not a bug. :-)

If cookies are off, expect javascript to be off, too.  However, you can just 
use customerror[1] to write your own 403 error page that says "remember to 
turn cookies on, nitwit" (or something more polite <g>).

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
