But with that, there's no tracing information being collected about what is done *inside* Artemis, only propagating the client's tracing context across the Artemis step, right?
And a non-JMS centric use case would be for example, having an OpenTracing aware AMQP client that sends a message (with included tracing uuid in the delivery annotations) to Artemis.
Currently this tracing uuid isn't propagated to the consumer.

The opentracing-contrib project would certainly be a possible place.
Question is, whether putting it inside the Artemis repo wouldn't be better from an integration point of view, making OpenTracing support an Artemis feature.
