I remember reading something similar in one of the standard documents.
It sounds easy enough, but the devil is in the details.

It would be nice to have specific guidelines on when to use the original
path, or which elements of it to use - set the specific digis which
forwarded the message, or set the same placeholders (WIDE, AB, ...)?

How to handle own mobility? Should a reply message be sent via your
default path if it is 10 minutes older? 30 minutes?
