In performing research into various website potential issues, I've seen some examples of sites returning upwards of 6-8 individual Cookies. Exactly what impact does this have?

For example why would a site drop 6 cookies on me like this?

Set-Cookie: xid=*****; path=/
Set-Cookie: xid=*****; path=/; domain=www.example.com
Set-Cookie: xid=*****; path=/; domain=www.example.com
Set-Cookie: RefererCookie=deleted; expires=Thu, 28-Dec-2006 08:33:59 GMT; path=/; domain=www.example.com
Set-Cookie: store_language=deleted; expires=Thu, 28-Dec-2006 08:33:59 GMT
Set-Cookie: store_language=US; expires=Sat, 27-Dec-2008 08:34:00 GMT

I would think one Cookie is one too many? I'm used to doing everything in Sessions. What gives with all these damn Cookies? And what health risks are involved? ;)

Different scripts that handle different parts of the website.

Few large websites run on some monolithic software platform. There are usually completely separate scripts for blogs, forums, stores, etc. etc. etc.
