I agree. But Edward has some concern about how to enforce the
'destination' format if we unified the route, which I think we can lose
the schema on the destination to string let runtime do the syntax check.

The issue is with the nmstate clients, not nmstate itself.
The clients will have to write their own code to make sure they are passing
the correct thing. schema to code generator would have done that for them automatically.

As far as I know, existing schema standards do not support changing the type or format of one
entry based on a different entry value.

The origin is better. Source might confuse with source routing.
