I'm glad to hear others within the working group agree that the draft (with
or without Paul Giralt's proposed changes) provides no way to avoid
intermediaries from sending inaccurate Session-ID values when generating
related requests and responses.  Similarly, the draft provides no way to
avoid endpoints from sending inaccurate remote uuid values when generating
requests and responses (although Paul Giralt's proposed change provides some
consistency concerning responses).

The inability of intermediaries to avoid sending inaccurate Session-ID
values when generating related requests and responses has been why I
occasionally ask for the limitation to be explicitly mentioned within the
draft and why I occasionally raise issues with the draft's MUST statements.

The draft currently allows intermediaries (excluding maybe any which might
be required to track the uuids) to not add Session-ID when generating
(instead of relaying) requests and responses.  This is because the draft
prefers no Session-ID instead of one which might cause a non-desired uuid
change.  I'm not sure if Paul Giralt intends to change this aspect of the

I'm not sure if the current limitations of the draft (or proposed change)
will meet the expectations of the working group or 3GPP.  However, I guess
that the draft will continue to evolve until it is abandoned or deemed good
