First, I want to make clear that I do not want to harm Dmitry in any way 
with my decent answers in this thread. Dmitry did a great job in 
maintaining realurl for lots of years and I'm very thankful for all the 
things he did to keep this complicated code with tons of dependencies in 
a state where it always worked and never substantially broke. That is 
However, CMS is now in a state where routing must be part of the core 
functionality. For whatever solution we find to this, I would highly 
appreciate if Dmitry stays part and helps with all the experience he has 
in this area.

After the discussion on this list it seems there is another option:

* Create a fresh extension with a new name that provides basic routing. 
* Pick over those parts from realurl that are essential to solve the 
main problem.
* Leave out those parts that tend to trigger problems (like for example 
the decode cache if you have multiple news with the same title).
* The extension will be created and maintained by a group of core near 
people and kept in sync with core master development.
* A TER release could be done to resolve needs of for example the 
packages / distributions.
* It can be decided later if that is merged to CMS core or just kept as 
dependency of the distribution.
* The extension then could later be slowly adapted to "fancy routing 
2.0", implementing more sophisticated and additional features in a clean 
* Result is a barebone extension. If that is not enough, projects could 
still switch to something different. There is no naming conflict.
