What is the use case for "Per client time wheel management." ?
What is the use case for "Waiting wheel. ?"

Unless these represent common uses of JACK, the required features have no
role in the API. Currently, these look like corner cases to me.

It it true that I skipped over the proposal for dynamic/on-the-fly backend
switching. This has already been discussed and yes, it would be great to
add it. Torben did this for his "tschak" implementation. Its another
example of something that needs to be done, not discussed.

I did read it to the end, which is why I remarked on the port metadata idea
which would make the "rooms" idea much easier to implement and manage
