they are not sessions, because sessions are represented on disk by a
folder, not a file.
it is true that if you add new audio to one snapshot, it is not visible
in the others. but thats nature of a snapshot: its one time-based
version of the session. each time you take a snapshot, you create a
potential branch in the history of the session. you are free to follow
many branches, but more work (currently manual) is required to merge
them back together again.
