I'm not sure I follow (very likely missing your point) -- specifically I 
don't know what you mean by '... CS endpoint associated with the 
*initial sequence*'.

The resolution of i090 says this about the specified endpoint:

"This REQUIRED element, of type wsa:EndpointReferenceType as specified 
by WS-Addressing [WSAddressing] specifies the endpoint reference to 
which WS-RM protocol messages related to the offered Sequence are to be 

In the non-offered sequence, RMD/RMS are fuzzy concepts not necessarily 
associated with a single EPR. For example, we talk about sending 
terminate message to the "RMD" not to a particular EPR. Doesn't this 
resolution change that for offered sequences? I.e., doesn't this 
resolution restrict the RMD to the specified EPR (for the offered sequence)?

Thanks for the response.
