Have we documented what a session-id should look like anywhere in
the documentation?  This document is to help third-party to write
implementations of the protocol, but the above description leaves
things "implementation defined" a bit too much, I am afraid.

For example, as this must fit on a single pkt-line as an advertised
capability, there would be some length limit.  Are there other
inherent limitations due to our protocol?  Are there some artificial
limitations that we may want to impose to make it easier to harden
implementations against common mistakes?  For example are bytes in
<session-id> allowed to contain LF, CR, NUL, etc.?
