We are discussing a core functionality if MediaWiki. I have the feesling that
you are talking about Wikipedia and the upcoming long term cookie for it only.

Probably because the latest MediaWiki release with the new login form is not
very often deployed to third parties. Especially companies do not very often
update a MediaWiki installation.

And I can confirm, that some of the installations I care for are using very
different cookie lifetime settings. Between some days and some weeks. Depending
on the security rules of the company. But I am not able to link to them because
most of them are in an intranet, not public available.
