Actually, the way to go here would be one router with lookup
techniques which reads from its own config files or even a config
database instead of having one hard-coded router per domain. That's
going to be a performance nightmare.

Remember, exim forks a lot, and each newly forked process has to read
the configuration anew.

Cat skinning is absolutely forbidden here. Kira and Murphy won't
appreciate being skinned.
