Does the latter part about cookies and APIs apply to dropbox and skydrive support? I'd think anything that works through a standard (or de facto standard) like oauth or passport would be stable enough to keep in. On the other hand, I'm 100% OPDS, so I'd be okay with dropbox and skydrive support going away.
