I think mirinda34 is write we would not be able to put the salary expectation upfront instead say that only when asked.

I think Cover letter is still part of CV and it should include only vital info.

A cover letter should be written more like a sales letter. Even though it may seem creepy, you are after all selling your skills to the employer. Just like you would sell a product and try to convince or show the costumer why its better then the next one, you have to convince the person reading the cover letter that you're the one for the job!
