This is what the loose draft says:

"5. Proposed Solution

   The proposed solution is simple.  When handling a request, a proxy
   only rewrites the Request-URI when performing a retargeting
   operation.  If, instead, the proxy is trying to route the request via
   some entity (whether its a proxy or UA) to reach the target, the
   Request-URI is retained, and Route header fields are pushed into the
   request to reach the target.

etc."

This applies to ALL proxies on the path, otherwise one will not always
find the current target (service invocation uri) in the Request-URI. 
 
>>Maybe the "loose route" wording is confusing (I think it is also 
>>mentioned in the UA-loose-route draft that a better naming may be

>> 
>>Also, maybe one can assume that a home proxy knows what entities not

>[JRE] Surely it is only the home proxy that takes an AoR and determines
a contact URI to route to. Maybe my understanding of home proxy is
different.

So, what is your understanding?

Christer
