[Freeswitch-dev] Request for guidelines on endpoints inner working

The general jist of your overview seems sound.

To answer your question:

Typically you would have the protocol specific side create some sort of
table of all the calls with something to tie it to the freeswitch channel.
To be threadsafe you can keep the channels uuid string in a table and
whenever you need to do something to that channel you can find it with
session = switch_core_session_locate(uuid)
This will only give you the session if it can acquire a read lock giving you
suitable level of guarentee that the channel will not be destroyed until you
release it with switch_core_session_rwunlock(session);

for the other way around you can store some info to get back to the master
protocol by way of the
private structure found in the channel with either a direct pointer to your
master entity or some similar
token based lookup to find the correct entity.
