The main plan is to use the existing streaming mechanism. That allows
changes/LCRs to be shipped synchronously to some nodes and
asynchronously to others.

We need a mechanism that works across continents, so eager replication
is not the most likely candidate. So the focus would be on shipping
changes after they have been made using lazy replication.

It sounds a bit strange but we can have synchronous lazy replication,
if you wish it.

None of the above presumes anything about the content or role of the
LCRs being shipped.
