Yes, you are correct, Jan. There is no way to reliably determine the 
remote ip/port from the Target's standpoint.

Bummer.

With this in mind, I am going to adjust my proposal such that when the 
TCP connection is established from the Target to a Initiator/Proxy, a 
four-byte integer in network byte order is sent from the 
Initiator/Proxy to the Target. That integer will be the remote port 
which the Target will use to identify itself.

Obviously, it's not ideal to have _any_ line protocol, but if we must, 
I'd prefer it to be as minimal as possible.

Comments?
