According to your model, the initial path specified by the sender can be
modified by
intermediaries.  Based on this idea, intermediaries should be able to
modify the response path,
that is, the reverse path in your term.  In my example, the sender side
gateway "modifies"
the reverse path so as to forward the response message to the intermeiary
in Intranet.
I think this is a natural extention of your idea, and organizes a symmetric
structure.
Make sense?
