One problem with cookies: many people trash their Netscape preferences often. It's still crash-prone software.
I myself -- and I know some other people who do this -- have a startup script in Frontier that trashes every Netscape preference that can reasonably be trashed. Every time I reboot, Frontier deletes my cookie and global history files. I keep my Netscape cache on a RAM disk (which also improves performance, btw), and so my cache disappears every time I shut down.
Yes, Netscape is more stable as a result.
I don't have any problem with the idea of cookies. Perhaps I'll try leaving it alone and see what happens.
