When creating the updated EndpointDescription the ServiceReference originally passed to RemoteServiceAdmin.exportService(ServiceReference, Map) must be queried to pick up any changes to its service properties. If this argument is null then the original properties passed when creating this ExportRegistration should be used when constructing the updated EndpointDescription. Otherwise the new properties should be used, and replace the original properties for subsequent calls to the update method.
