The Routing Layer of PSYC is syntactically almost the same as PSYC itself, but to keep things orderly we call it the

Modular Message Protocol

It has a fundamental builtin notion of context and multicasting. The actual implementation of multicasting albeit is flexible and free for any brilliant mind to improve.

Have a look at the specification at

The purpose of separating routing from end-to-end content is to be able to produce rapid router technology (in hardware if necessary) which only parses the routing layer, then operates accordingly, without having to look at anything below.

Modules of MMP

The point in all the modules is: a simple protocol implementation just doesn't support many or any of these modules and is still capable of communicating with the rest of PSYCspace, in fact a few vars in a UDP packet can be sufficient to do a job.
