Allow users to self-subscribe to sessions
It would be nice to allow users to subscribe to sessions (if enabled by the administrator), like they can subscribe to courses. In a setup where all learners are only in sessions, the subscribe-to-course feature is useless, but subscribe-to-session can be useful.

Has this ever been implemented? I still copy complete courses with user data when needed but now I want to switch to sessions to save disk and database space and to avoid complaints from users that still see their old courses that are expired.
A move-user-data-from-course-to-session would be an alternative approach: users subscribe to the course and are later moved into a course session.
Why is session 0 (the base course) not visible/convertable as a real session? You see the id_session=0 in every URL.

The second one you mentioned (being able to move user data from course to session) is available in the "sessions" management block on the admin homepage:
