I was always of the opinion that copying the stream and track
identifiers through was a bad idea.  We probably needed to add a new
sort of identifier for correlation purposes rather than try to
superimpose two namespaces like we have.

So this works perfectly well, if you are OK with essentially removing
the identifier requirements we have already agreed to.
