I am surprised to hear that. I can understand the functional benefit and the desire and effort to make it as secure as possible but I reject leaving data on the client and passing it in headers that have to go through various proxies and app forwarding and such especially where HTTPS is not completely enforced.

But its not even "as secure as possible". The cookies are merely signed, they're not encrypted.
