   Pseudo-session applications:

      While this class of application does not use the Diameter
      Session-ID AVP to correlate requests, there is an implied ordering
      of transactions defined by the application and except for the
      Session-ID differences pseudo-session based applications are
      generally assumed to behave like session-based application.  The
      3GPP defined Cx application [3GPP.29.229] is an example of a
      pseudo-session application.

Would this suffice?

So it is implied that the same server is contacted by the client managing the session. In the Cx example, the same origin-host will be used in the client-initiated requests after the initial exchange and the server discovery phase.
