Yes, you are right. The destination OC reuses the TCP session of the incoming 

But it would be not much effort to implement this into OC. Actually I did it 
by intense because using a separate connection back would double the HS 
connection setup time which was extremely high (up to 30 seconds) at the time 
OC was developed.

We are currently polishing the website, the code of OC and so on up. Probably 
I'll add this feature.
