> The protocol specification describes {{\[short\]}} as unsigned int16, but then on the
section {{2.3. stream}} it describes it like a signed int16, being {{0x7fff}} the maximum
positive value.
> Additionally, {{\[int\]}} and {{\[long\]}} are signed, making the identifier {{\[short\]}}
somewhat confusing.
> For disambiguation, it would be nice to introduce {{\[ushort\]}} or {{\[unsigned short\]}}
(replacing most entries) and leave {{\[short\]}} as signed value, mainly for stream ids.
