Description

From the SPDY draft:

""A SETTINGS frame [...]. When the server is the sender, the sender can request that configuration data be persisted by the client across SPDY sessions and returned to the server in future communications.""

The concern here is that this provides another mechanism by which servers are able to track clients.
