I have a question though: do you consider using the Dispatch Router a
good idea for our purposes? In particular this also implies: is the
Dispatch Router ready for production from your point of view?

 From my point of view, yes it is. It is still a relatively young
project with lots of work ahead. It is already used in production as
part of Red Hat Satellite.

More generally, if the interface to Hono from the solutions and protocol adapters is AMQP 1.0, then most of the core code implementing that will be the same whether those connect directly to Hono or go via a router. The benefit of the latter is that Hono doesn't need to focus on the security aspects of having clients connecting to it directly. By using a standard protocol you leave the door open for alternate solutions, and as I say, even having Hono accepting direct connections should still be easy to achieve. So you have lots of flexibility.
