Then the cgiutils.c code would need to be outfitted to detect the type of request (OGC vs. CGI). I guess it'd need that anyway to do request specific processing w/env vars. Could a msIsOGCRequest() be crafted somehow?

These would be set in the webserver configuration and processed within cgiutil.c. Since a runtime option isn't possible this would be better than a compile-time one... Just thinking out loud.
I agree this needs to be fixed for OGC/WMS, but since in the OGC/WMS
case we never want cookies to be appended to params, the cookies should
automatically be ignored in that case. For this reason I'm not too keen
on requiring this kind of environment variables unless there is
absolutely no other way to go.
