 [attachment:7856.diff] is a first pass at refactoring the 'bp-x-scope' etc
 cookies. The basic idea is this:

 - Only set the cookies for logged in users, but this behavior is
 - In addition to the cookies, all users will have their "preferences"
 stored in a JS variable, so that it'll persist for the pageload
 - When fetching the "preferences" in order to set up the page or send the
 AJAX request, first try grabbing from the cookie (if cookie storage is
 enabled) but otherwise pull from the local JS variable

 There could be edge cases not yet covered by this, but I think the general
 idea is correct. Could I get another set of eyes?
