This is a security event, which is not related to a channel. For all we
know, something just registered; that doesn't mean there is an active call
between this Account and Asterisk.

If you want to know when a peer registers, you should use the PeerStatus
event, as you allude to later.

events that have nothing to do with an active channel.

A PeerStatus of Reachable does not imply that a peer has registered, merely
that the peer is now reachable (based on qualify attempts). You should get
a PeerStatus event when a peer first registers, with a PeerStatus header of
