Each portion of the call should be a discreet CDR, end of story.

handle that in CDR parsing/reporting.

The one thing that would make that really easy would be a unique id that
stays the same throughout the call flow and is recorded in every CDR

Agreed. Lets wipe the slate clean and draw up something completely new
which hopefully will be ready for 1.8.
