SessionManager is responsible for expiration. I'm not sure what you are
thinking of for refresh. Updating last-accessed time? That would be
the SessionManager as well. Cookies are not handled at all by these
objects -- that's one of those boring details I think is best left to
library users (frameworks, services, middleware), or put in another object.
