The default matches the clustering or lack thereof of the SP, which is to say, since the SP out of box is not functional across servers because of session state, it works fine to do it that way.

Cookies introduce hard to debug failure modes involving frames and third party cookies, http/https mismatches, and hostname rewrites that I got tired of answering questions about. They also used to break Office document links.
