While Noun + どおり is used in cases such as いどおり (according to my memory) it can also be constructed as Noun の とおり as in えのとおり

Perhaps this pattern should be listed somehow as とおり instead of just どおり which isn't used with verbs.

A weak suggestion this time since the linked grammar point covers several uses.

Related grammar: ようだ "As A; Like A" (sense 2)

Related in the sense of introduction with ~ように, but there's no example of that use even though the construction allows it.

Bumping for my weak suggestion of related grammar. Is it a fit?

Sorry for the delayed response! I can go ahead and link these up if I can remember how (it's been years).
