I was reading "Enterprise Integration Patterns" by Gregor Hohpe, Bobby
Woolf, et al. last night about the routing slip pattern. The problem that
the pattern solves is "How do we route a message cosecutively through a
series of processing steps when the sequence of steps is not known at
design time and may vary for each message?".

I was thinking about writing a JEP to specify that pattern for XMPP.
I searched through the JEPs, and came across JEP-0033: Extended Stanza
Addressing. The schema for JEP-0033 seems suitable for the pattern, but
it seems like it is only geared towards multicasting. I just don't know if
it would be better to specify it on top of JEP-0033, revise that JEP to
address the pattern, or to start from a blank slate.

I would appreciate any input or suggestions. It would be nice to see a
standard way of sending a stanza to entity B, then to C, and back to A
with all the information stored in the stanza.

Regards,
Nolan
