Delegating the stanza to another does not vacate this requirements and have this delegation be transparent to the originators of the forwarded stanzas.  And the desired transparency means the forwarding entity basically has to block processing of any stream of stanzas its processing for the component to answer.  And this, I think, makes the this extension significant less desirable.

At a minimum, text which calls attention to the in-order processing requirements and clearly states the delegating server MUST still abide them ought to be incorporated into the spec.

There's always 3920ter / 6120bis...
