Bastian and I talked about routing for some hours last Friday. We had 
this idea to solve this (Bastian, if I miss something, feel free to fill 

* Packages can define "Sub"-Routes in their Routes.yaml
* TYPO3 by default only reads Routes.yaml from the global configuration 
space (and context, of course)
* "Sub"-Routes can be imported/mounted under a prefix in the global 
* the later could also be done through some tool, preferably the package 
manager, which could also alert the user of existing "sub"-routes (or 
presets as you might call them)
* a routing setup tool will allow for display and simulated matching of 
URIs against the configuration to ease debugging and setup

The syntax with which the "sub"-routes will be like this:
  ---- YAML ----
uriPattern: tools/{TYPO3CR}'
         package: TYPO3CR
uriPattern: tools/{backupThingie}'
         package: SiteBackup
         file: OptimizedRoutes.yaml
  ---- YAML ----

This means that "sub"-routes can be "mounted" with any prefix and will 
be configured like a route part. If only 'package' is given, Routes.yaml 
will be used, if 'file' is given a specific set of rules can be imported 
(this can be given multiple times to allow for modular rulesets, they 
are then combined).

'file' can not hold a path and is always relative to the package's 
'Configuration' directory.

* the naming of the "sub"-routes needs to be finalized :)
* if you have ideas to share, shoot!
* I added this to http://forge.typo3.org/issues/show/2126 - feel free to 
comment there
