Thanks for the question.

Status messages do not need to have an identifier field.

As we have mentioned in the recent Moodle announcement, the status message will have the set of messages sent by the node who originates the status message. This information is sufficient for the receiving node to see which messages are missing and act accordingly.

Hope this helps
