Hi Dale,
Thanks for checking draft -11 and for your comments. Regarding related dialogs, the draft has section 3.7 (opening paragraph copied below). Section 3.7 also includes a signalling example with REFER and points out how UUIDs can be used to link sessions together ("dialog3 is not logged by Alice's terminal, however the test case identifier ab30317f1a784dc48ff824d0d3715d86 is also the test case identifier local-uuid) in INVITE F5.  Also, the test case identifier of dialog2, which is logged by Alice's terminal, can be linked to dialog1 and dialog3 because the remote-uuid component of dialog2 is the test case identifier ab30317f1a784dc48ff824d0d3715d86"). 

Session-ID must be supported for logme, so implementers will need to understand RFC 7989 and its concept of related sessions. 


3.7.  Marking Related Dialogs

   "Log me" marking is done per-dialog and typically begins at dialog
   creation and ends when the dialog ends.  However, dialogs related to
   a "log me" marked dialog MAY also be "log me" marked.  An example is
   call transfer described in section 6.1 of [RFC5589] and the logged
   signaling for related dialogs can be correlated using Session-ID
   values as described in section 10.9 of [RFC7989].
