First, please don't base this all on emergency services, which have special

If I read draft-ietf-sip-location-conveyance right, it is covering both cases
where SIP sends location from one SIP entity to another and cases where
location-based routing will occur. Having "rentransmission=routing-permitted"
and "retransmission=no" as distinct values allows the end user to say
whether a specific message should be treated according to case one or case

Basically, it is cleaner if we don't try to figure what is implied when
a UA builds their message for dispatch@carservice.example, but let them
specify it instead. We've already agreed to trace this (adding the
message-routed-on-this-URI parameter), but that doesn't give the
user any control. To give the user that control, we have to distinguish
between the case where something is intended for the end recipient *only*
and the case where something may be used to the route the call.
