I'd strike the same issue if I used traditional RPC, UDP or REST.
The absence of a streaming connection means that the session data
that would be implicit to the connection (e.g. holding a cursor to
a DB open) has to reside elsewhere.

Streaming XML isn't out of the question; just view a document as a
rather large packet.  Then all you need is some session information
... and I'm kinda back to where I started.

It's related to SYN cookies, except I may need to recover more
state (I'm not sure; I don't have a formal method for achieving
this yet).
