Those two quoted URIs would seem to be completely unrelated to my query,
which isn't about changing settings, but detecting the current mode of
operation.  

I'm concerned whether you're going to be locked out because you're not
in their preferred mode, just like various dumb sites excluded Netscape,
or particular versions of browsers, or browsers on particular operating
systems, or because you were rejecting third-party cookies, or another
damn fool reason that's got little relation to real security.
