Very roughly, trying to do this kind of thing is why it takes people
months to write even basic protocols over TCP. No layering. Logging IP
addresses in the server? Measuring latency of servers?

Most of what you want to achieve can be done easily above 0MQ by
ignoring the physical network and talking application to application.
Heartbeats from servers to clients. Application-level identifiers.

If you'd used 0MQ in any depth you'd know this.

So my conclusion is you've not internalized it, and this is the real
issue. Write a thousand lines of 0MQ code, throw that away, and you'll
see your perspective shifting, and these problems disappearing.
