A forwarding/routing slip JeP has been on my todo list to base a couple 
of other JEPs on. Seeing how the above is a start, I would recommend 
using 0033 as a base. 0033's schema allows a lot more than this 
forwarding JEP. It would just need to be an informational JEP on how to 
use 0033 for forwarding instead of multicasting. The only conflict that 
could occur is if the message is sent to a multicasting component 
instead of an endpoint that can forward stanzas.

There would also need to be a way to tack on the amount of time spent at 
each hop. This was a feature request for another JEP that I need to 
spend some more time on. It's available at 
http://semanticgap.com/jeps/translation.html if you'd like to see how I 
was planning on using 0033 to forward stanzas.

I hope that helps.
