Hi Steven,

The reason for not storing/restoring the display name is simple: this 
information has no value in regards to the SIP dialog (it does not 
affect or interfere with the dialog state, as the FROM URI does) and it 
is used only in the initial invites - to be displayed when receiving a 
call ; in the sequential requests, it is not used at all.

A good practice (or at least what we do on our systems) is to delete the 
display name in the sequential requests if the display in initial invite 
was changed (more for privacy purposes).
