Come on Jason, what part of "This is available not only for the increase 
and decrease of a figure of callsign but also for ID, which is not used 
as callsign rather than numeric" don't you understand?  =]

Honestly, I have no idea if that relates to SSIDs or not.  They do 
mention in the spec that if a station has multiple radios, they are 
distinguished by the last character, A through F.  So while people are 
complaining that 15 SSIDs aren't enough, they went and lowered it to 6. 
  And disregarded 30 years of tradition by throwing out the -ssid notation.
