In XMPP, you track packets based on the 'id' attribute. However, those
are generated by a client. If an intermediary (such as Asterisk) wants
to keep track of all the Jingle traffic flowing around, it may want
something more advanced. Many Jingle-related stanzas include a <jingle/>
child element with a session ID ('sid') attribute. However, that does
not normally apply to IQ-results and IQ-errors because RFC 3920 says
it's optional to include the original child element(s) when sending IQ
stanzas of type "result" and "error". While it might be nice for
intermediaries to have that 'sid' on each and every stanza, it would get
quite verbose. I think we probably have the 'sid' on the packets that
matter, but discussion is welcome from implementors on the topic.
