This still leaves the SIP signaling hairpin on Caller 2's system.

Yes, by using the SIP REFER method. Caller 2 will send a SIP REFER to Caller
1 asking it to talk to Caller 3. This will cause Caller 1 to drop it's
session with Caller 2 and send a new INVITE to Caller 3. So, this is how you
do it from a SIP protocol perspective. I'm not sure to what extent Asterisk
supports this capability.
