True for Refresh. I was thinking more specifically of updates when we
are connected.

The idea of pushing the expected number of updates within the cookie is
for information purposes : having this number traced in the
logs/monitored could help in some cases where the refresh phase takes
long : the users will not stop the server thinking it has stalled.

Not bad at all. What makes it 2x slower, btw?
