That makes a lot of sense to me. Maintaining this session 
information across transport hops is hard, and it places 
an additional requirement on all transport bindings in 
existence now or developed in the future to provide 
"cookie" capability that maps to that of other transports. 

To approach this from a different direction and (on the 
larger question about multiple cascading requests), how
is all this different from CORBA object service contexts 
and RequestID's? other existing object/RPC contenxt-management
mechanisms?
