I can imagine it being interesting but only if we could inject a new/changed bridge configuration via similar means. AFAICT, what you're asking for is actually the `lazy' bridge which sort of comes up and goes away if there's no traffic (though I haven't experimented with those).First: yes, the new/changed bridged configuration would be my next question :-), but a static configuration would also help. For the static configuration: assume a broker runs in a local network with one subscription to a broker on a remote (cloud) server. At some moment the cloud broker wants to "tap" channels of the local broker (e.g. for support reasons or because the remote site is a company HQ etc.). The remote site cannot contact the local site (firewall, no VPN), so a remote client cannot publish/subscribe directly to the local broker. The remote site can "contact" the local site by publishing a message to the subscribed channel and in this way request to start the bridge.
