Another possibility is to pick an engine randomly.

Another possibility would be to pick ORS as it is a university, but they now offer also commercial services based on their routing engine ;)

> As all available routing engines are basically commercial services, we could maybe

You have to differentiate here: all routing engines are truly open source with an open source license, they just have a commercial hosted service *based* on the open source engine. Of course I see your point but naming the engines commercial services is plain wrong. Also it might be interesting to discuss: if there is an engine without a company in the background - would this be really more sustainable/good for OSM?

> the GraphHopper case is confusing because it's the name of both the software and also now of a service built on that software

Might be, still our commercial solution is the "GraphHopper Directions API".
