It seems that in revision 1.36 of JEP-65 in CVS (by stpeter), the 
role-reversal support was removed.  This feature allowed the target to become 
the initiator, by re-using the same 'sid'.

Similarly, the latest revision claims that initiation requires listing one or 
more streamhosts, however this is not consistent with the role-reversal 
feature.  A client may have no valid streamhosts, and may wish to send an 
empty request, in anticipation of a role-reversal.

I hope these changes were oversights.  stpeter, you can find the original text 
in revision 1.35.
