Replying to myself, I just realized I could eliminate the exclusion of
shoppers who don't accept session cookies by displaying some text on
an empty-cart shopping cart or checkout page that says something like:

Click here if you added items to your shopping cart that have disappeared.

That link could go to a page explaining that they should either turn
on session cookies or click here to enable shopping without them. 
That link could unset mv_no_session.  Is this feasible?
