Just to clarify: a State switch is literally a message
switch that State agencies use to route messages
to different sources, for example, the National
Crime Information Center. Messages will have
code types with different kinds of responses
expected, different privileges depending on
the querying agency, etc. Think of a cruiser
doing a traffic stop that then sends in a vehicle
check based on the license tag, or a person check
based on name, SSN, etc.
Message switching and routing are a pretty
well-defined domain. XML and SOAP can
commoditize it. That's a good thing.

Sure - it depends on how one interprets the term "XML Router". My
interpretation was more on the "macro" level - i.e. routing information
from one system (i.e. one enterprise) to another; while with Cocoon, the
routing is more on a micro level - i.e. internal to a single system,
from process to process.
