FTR the current design for the federation plugin (of which more soon) 
falls between these two - there is a new "x-federation" exchange type, 
but it can emulate any existing type; it doesn't have its own routing logic.

The fact of it being an exchange type may go away in the future, 
although it's actually pretty convenient.
