      Description

      The ORIGINATORID is a 64-bit word consisting of an IPv4 host address, 16-bit process id, and 16-bit local value. In addition to the 16-bit process id not being standard across platforms (Mac OS >Leopard goes to 99999), the churn rate for the local value should be much higher than just 16 bits.

      This could be fixed to changing ORIGINATORID to a 32-bit process id and a separate value for the local value, which would be specified together in the DM event selector. I have to look into this more to see if this is a viable solution.

      This might need to go to three separate values to future proof it (i.e., ipv6).
