IMHO a proxy shouldn't behave as a UAC. Perhaps it can monitor dialogs and so 
because this features just requires requests inspection, there is no intrusion 
(adding a Record-Route parameter is not intrusion XD).
But behaving as an UAC is 100% intrusion.

Yes, OpenSIPS is very flexible and can be used to solve some UA problems, but 
the proxy shouldn't be the key for this purpose (IMHO).
