 Replying to [comment:6 cypherpunks]:
 > It looks like a nonsense. Why do we need the original circuit instead of
 the current one for the first party?

 I think that's because we want to make sure to show the circuit that
 actually loaded the content in a tab regardless what the current circuit
 is/were if one was about to fetch the content again. However, I am not
 sure if those corner cases are actually possible but I assume so.
