JSR289 is pretty clear on how to handle the virtual branch responses for Initial requests where it specifies
It makes sense .
But JSR289 doesn't say much about the proxy branch response created for subsequent request. usecase can be when application (proxy) wants to handle authentication for BYE request and challenge it by sending 407/BYE.
In that case it is not clear
This is very confusing and needs some clarification.

Section 12.2.3 has been updated to clarify that virtual proxy branch only applies to initial requests. Since the specification already say that application should not proxy a subsequent proxy and that would result in an IllegalStateException, the intention of the specification is pretty clear in general.
