This would work.   However, I think we can agree that while we need to account for the case where the user has a slow link, by far the majority of links will be fast enough that dumping the whole RFC down them isn't going to be a problem.   So the default could be to do that, and people who want limit-by-default could use cookies. I don't think the problem is serious enough (given what I said earlier) that we need limit-by-default to be the no-cookie behavior.
