To rephrase my statement, consider this -

IQ request response between client and server
request - C1->S
response - C1<-S

As you rightly said, it could also be the other way around
request - S->C1
response - S<-C1

But in JINGLE, its like this -
request - C1->S->C2
response - C1<-S<-C2

Is this considered "normal" ?
