Water-resistive barrier

Water-resistive barrier

Sometimes also called the weather-resistive barrier, this layer of any wall assembly is the material interior to the wall cladding that forms a secondary drainage plane for water that makes it past the cladding. This layer can be building paper, housewrap, or even a fluid-applied material.

The system was rigorously tested by independent laboratories and was certified to meet all NFPA 285, ABAA Air Barrier Assembly and ICC-ES Water-Resistive Barrier acceptance criteria.
Seems to me that you only need a ROESE if you want to wrap the exterior of the continuous insulation with a building paper or other non-adhered film water-resistive barrier. This is because the building paper or other non-adhered film water-resistive barrier needs to be attached to something, and you need extremely rigid backing behind the flange to get the sealant behind the flange to act as a gasket between the sheathing and the building paper or other non-adhered film water-resistive barrier.
Now I do not have any problem with installing building papers or other non-adhered film water-resistive barriers over continuous insulating sheathing.
These membranes are sometimes termed secondary barriers, sheathing membranes, drainage planes, or water-resistive barriers. Of these terms, the International Code Council (the organization that issues the International Residential Code) recognizes water-resistive barrier (WRB).
