Maybe you can get IE to open a "web page" at a specialized port in the 
application, that is, connect to a server on the same computer that is 
really in your application.  The application sets the cookies.

On approach to the domain problem is to make the cookies widely 
available.

Maybe IE also allows cookie management by AppleScript.  Well, I said 
maybe.
