I've added a link to the email thread to ZOOKEEPER-723 .
I've also created a new JIRA for the approach I've suggested
ZOOKEEPER-834  I will try to provide a patch after I finish my GSoC
For me it seems like a good idea to allow a session to create / own an
ephemeral tree and not just leafs under persistent znodes.
