We've had input to the effect that a rollover would occur too
frequently for some users at a 24-bit identifier.  I think that the
number in question was a rollover every 10 minutes happens anyway.
I'd have to confirm whether that is at 31 or 24.  Given how disruptive
a rollover is, a the extra bits are useful.

Note also that stream identifiers are used elsewhere, so we'd need to
rework things in a few other places if they changed in size.
