[standards-jig] JEP-0077 Use Case Question

Example 3 in the "3.1 Entity Registers with a Host" use case states that
a host can inform the registering entity that it is already registered.
However, at that point how does it know who the registering entity is?
The host hasn't received a username element and the get request to
determine the registration fields did not include a from address.

So.. Should the initial get request include a from address or username
field?  Or should the <registered/> notification occur after the entity
attempts to register with the set, including all the required fields
from the host.  But this seems to be handled by the Conflict exception.
