How many users know that the authentication happens only once a browser
session vs. at the whim of their OP?

How many OPs are willing to set cookies that are valid for the length of
an entire browser session (which may be days or even months), rather
than a specific amount of time (an hour perhaps) determined by the P{s
clock, and not that of the client?
