Technical Summary

   An application server can use the method described to voluntarily
   identify itself to a push service.  This identification information
   can be used by the push service to attribute requests that are made
   by the same application server to a single entity.  An application
   server can include additional information that the operator of a push
   service can use to contact the operator of the application server.
   This identification information can be used to restrict the use of a
   push subscription a single application server.
