Subject: RE: Ballot Attached - Group 3: Sessions

I'm baffled.  I have always wanted explicit scenarios showing differences
between logout and timeout.  I originally wanted to make the scenarios
explicit to show logout/timeout separately (and votable separately), hence
my first submission.  These are the only user or system actions that result
in changes of state.  These seemed to be the only things that are applicable
for session to me.  It was my thinking that if you approve either timeout or
logout, you have approved a form of session.  I was instructed to keep the
numbering and use cases roughly as is - specifically UC-3-1 session.  I
didn't agree at the time, but did it anyways, the 2nd /final submission.  

It now looks like a good thing because some people appear to want session
mgmt, but not logout and/or timeout.  This gives us a mechanism to approve
the topic, and then dive into the details of what these mean.  If we had
done what I suggested, then we might not have approved session management,
even if sufficient people wanted some form of it.  Now that we have approved
the concept of session management, we can start trying to figure out what
the detailed requirements and design..
