Yes, you're absolutely right.

However, hypothetically, if there was a great replication solution that
helped a lot of people, and it needed some changes to core, I don't
think the patch would be rejected as long as:

(1) The changes are as minimal as possible
(2) The changes are applicable to an entire class of replication, not
just a single implementation
