RFC2965 "HTTP State Management Mechanism" does not force any limit of cookies
per domain, moreover it defines that user agents should not have any limits in
this area:

"5.3  Implementation Limits

   Practical user agent implementations have limits on the number and
   size of cookies that they can store.  In general, user agents' cookie
   support should have no fixed limits.  They should strive to store as
   many frequently-used cookies as possible.  Furthermore, general-use
   user agents SHOULD provide each of the following minimum capabilities
   individually, although not necessarily simultaneously:
      *  at least 300 cookies
      *  at least 4096 bytes per cookie (as measured by the characters
         that comprise the cookie non-terminal in the syntax description
         of the Set-Cookie2 header, and as received in the Set-Cookie2
      *  at least 20 cookies per unique host or domain name"


In my opinion this report should be marked as WONTFIX.
