      Description

      Rather than creating store and forward networks, it might be nice to have a kind of composite transport where...

      • consumers are created on each broker found/discovered. This allows messages to be sent to any broker and consumed by any consumer
      • producers could dynmically choose which broker to send a message to (or could just pick one broker per session/producer)

      this allows for a load balancing layer at the client side which avoids the need for store/forward networks (which results in more network traffic and often increases load on the brokers).

      So it basically pushes load back to the clients. The downside of this appoach is that the clients have more connections to brokers - but given the linear scalability of this, it sounds a great idea to me at least
