Thanks for making sure I was clear on this.

Interesting. All the Redhat 389 documentation states that you should NOT
enable this on multiple masters. Is this recommendation in the
documentation something that should be reviewed?
Yeah this is probably outdated.
In the RI plugin there is specific code
to ignore replicated operations (hence the reason for the new config
setting). By default this will all work just fine, the config setting
is only for corner cases where the masters do not have the RI plugin
enabled, but the hubs/consumers do.
I'll be including this in the my write up. Hopefully I can get it done
