Go read the wiki to understand how switch works.

plain registration. Nothing more needed. If the registration expires it
is unavailable. pretty simple.

This really should be done in the dial plan of the endpoint. I think the
only thing that would be needed is a way to reject a call back to the
central switch machine without causing the call to be dropped.

Yep, you still have a lot to learn to understand the technology already
available to you before you go trying to create new tools.
