Hello Peter,

I would like structured strings; it increases compatibility in many
Maybe we should add several types and add an OPTIONAL description in

Enum ReasonType{

And an optional description that SHOULD be OPTIONAL.

Using both we can increase compatibility in error handling and user

Best Regards,

Should the reasons be free-form text (e.g., "Sorry, gotta go!") or 
structured/registered strings (e.g., "bandwidth-exceeded")? I can see 
justifications for either or both.

And these could be used for things other than session-terminate...
