How useful/important/desirable is a packet path trace?

I realize it takes room in the packet (and bandwidth), but there are 
times it would be nice to know where a packet has been.

I personally would like to have it optional, user-configurable.  The 
best case scenario may be to design a traceroute mechanism (might as 
well, while we're designing routers. :)

What is a TRACE only digi?  Sounds like a RELAY to me...
