Good heavens, no!

While the ORCPT content might be tempting thing to use for
routing, it can be stripped away at any moment in case the
message has gone thru a server, which does not support DSN.
(And ZMailer violates - slightly - the spirit of ORCPT by
 generating it in smtpserver (and "sendmail") in case it does
 not exist in input.)

That said, you would propably be happy with a router builtin
function which picks and decodes ORCPT parameter xtext content,
and returns that as a string ?

The first problem is to find the attribute which has the DSN data,
and then to pick ORCPT parameter value -- and to decode it.

I suggest you do it, if you want to have it.
See how  libsh/builtins.c: sh_get() does finding named
variable, and then named field.

In theory you want something like this:

pickorcpt (attrvarname) {
    local DSN, dd
    DSN="$(get $attrvarname DSN)" || return 1 # return if no DSN field
    # Split the DSN field
    for dd in $DSN
	ssift "$dd" in
		return "\1"  # "rfc822;xtextvalue"
    # Have DSN attribute component, but no ORCPT in it..
    return 1

In practice you want something written in C and capable to decode xtext,
and able to pick both "ORCPT=" and "orcpt=" tag-names within DSN attribute.
(In case the input happens to be in lower-case, or mixed case, or ..)
