I agree with Dale. Each early dialog is handled separately.

>From a standards perspective, I don't think we need to say much about forking in BUNDLE, other than maybe some general words that it may happen.

Then, whether it becomes tricky to implement, e.g. if one early leg uses BUNDLE and another doesn't, is another issue. But, as SIP has mechanisms to terminate early dialogs you don't like etc, I see this as a pure implementation issue.

Is this actually complicated?  That is, worse than is already the case in SIP...

My understanding is that in SIP (and this must be a SIP situation), each fork proceeds with completely independent state from all other forks.  The forks happen to share sending/receiving ports, but the received packets can be demultiplexed to the correct fork based on their sending addresses.  Of course, there are a range of obnoxious situations where you receive packets before you receive a SIP response (SDP answer) that describes them, but that is true in non-bundled SIP as well.
