But why does ownership go to the most recent session, instead of the
first active session?

In real life, an audience member does not automatically get exclusive
use of the microphone a public speaker is speaking into, just because
the audience member happened to be the last one to enter the room.
Instead, if a public speaker is using a microphone, then he or she
expects to be the exclusive user of that microphone until he or she
sets it down, gives it to someone, or purposefully shares it.
