v0.1 does not give much guidance on the format of Session ID strings. [1]

Should the format of Session ID be more strictly defined or is anything other
than null and "" valid? Would restricting allowed formats make application and
server implementation easier?

Possible items for discussion:
 * Does the string need to represent a number? If so must it be positive,
decimal/hex, etc.?
 * When may IDs be reused, if at all?
 * Must values increase or can they be random?
 * How unique must they be? Per page? Per renderer? Across the system?
