You also pass along a session id and if the user times out, she could
log back in and continue the previous session.

I would not recommend this because it is not standards compliant. W3C
standards reserve only four names for the target attribute "_blank",
"_parent", "_self", and "_top". Some developers also use "_new" instead
of "_blank" as the value for the target attribute to open a link in a
new window, although W3C standards do not define that as a target name,
thus browsers may ignore it or treat it as a synonym for "_blank".
Browser settings can override all of this.
