Similar to Benjamin, I am uneasy about this document and dual use of this
mechanism. I think the advice it gives for an attacker is to inject the "log
me" attribute at the beginning of a session that is of interest, closer to the
originator ;-).

Also one small nit:

In Section 1:

   This document defines a new header field parameter "logme" for the
   "Session-ID" header field [RFC7989].  Implementations of this
   document MUST implement session identity.

Is "session identity" defined in RFC 7989? RFC 7989 doesn't use the term
"session identity" anywhere. If you mean that in order to support this
extension one needs to implement support for the Session-ID header field I
suggest you rephrase the 2nd sentence to say something like this:

   Implementations of this document MUST implement [RFC7989].
