I wonder if this is needed. Some transports (ie SSL and TCP) already indicate 
a session because you have constant comms and the session is broken when the 
transport is teared down. It would be nice not to require the API to have a 
session id associated with it but instead have the session id a 
characteristeric of the transport.
