It's common practice to combine several values into a single 
cookie. But there is no 
method of validating each of the values individually.

So proposing something along the lines of...

$values = array(
       'expires' => $_SERVER['REQUEST_TIME'] + 3600,
       'value' => 'foo';

setcookie('comp', http_build_query($values,'', '&'));

And to read & filter...

$v = filter_input(INPUT_COOKIE, 'comp', 
   'expires' => FILTER_VALIDATE_INT,
   'value' => ...

What's about filter_input_array (or filter_var_array)?

Isn't there a possible issue with double encoding with having to use filter 

$cookie = filter_input(INPUT_FILTER, 'foo');

parse_str($cookie, $v);

filter_input_array($v, ... );
