This is not accurate. Suricata does do the session tracking.

The reason for the current format is that I wanted to output all the
records and also an easy to parse format. As the number of records is
dynamic, a single line format is tricky. Maybe it's not necessary to
output all these records, so I'm open to suggestions here.

Also, Tom is working on a json output where all the records of a single
TX are on a singe line. https://github.com/inliniac/suricata/pull/643
