Just have to chime in: what happens if the original RW magially reappears
after one of the ROs has been converted to RW? Does the whole world
self-destruct, does the whole cell loose all its data, does the whole
volume loose all its data, does the RW get destroyed or does it simply
become unavailable until the extra RW is got rid of or do they both stay
online and writes go randomly to both copies?

Naturally, I'm once again mostly curious as to possible data-loss;
unavailability of data is inconvenient but much less troublesome than
lost data and recovery from tapes (which still incurs some loss due to
the non-zero age of the backup).
