Yeah possible - its always tricky to find the right balance.

I wonder if you may want to do this in the configuration, and then in
the routes with serviceCall you then just need to refer to the service
name / url to be used - then all the round robin, service list, and so
on are configured outside the route in the configuration.

We could also leave those in the route DSLs as well so you can
override the configuration, so you can use


But then on the other hand if you just want to call a single service
you may want to do it all in the route without the configuration.  But
if we look at rest-dsl then it separates the configuration from the
REST endpoint.
