        Depends on: 16613

Session ID is currently optional in all cases. Should we require it to always
be implemented? The main advantage is more consistency for applications, and it
seems pretty easy to implement something (i.e. incrementing counter). Are there
reasons that a user agent/CDM would not want to implement an ID?

Bug 16613 proposes representing sessions as objects, which could reduce the
number of sessionId parameters and attributes. The ID would likely still need
to be exposed somehow, meaning this question would still need to be answered.

Bug 16739 relates to the format of Session ID.
