Other comments:
**What**: The main difference from Trace Context Level 1 (which is already in recommendation status) is the ability to express whether at least a part of the traceID has been randomly (or pseudo-randomly) generated.
**Why**: This enables downstream systems to use the trace ID for sampling purposes or for sharding purposes.
**How**: This is achieved by the introduction of a new flag called "Random Trace ID flag". If the newly introduced random-trace-id flag is set, at least the right-most 7 bytes of the trace-id MUST be randomly (or pseudo-randomly) generated.
