I read the question roughly like this:

   Why does this function take an existing channel and use it, rather than
   creating a completely new channel in the same style many other functions

Is there a particular benefit from using an existing channel rather than to
creating a new one?

I haven't read up the specs on this thing, but after you've sent this auth
agent request over the channel, is there a limitation to how this channel is
to be used or what is the application supposed to do (or not to do) with the
channel after a successful return?
