Putting the metadata in a catalog doesn't seem great because that only
can ever work on the master.  Maybe there's no need to configure this
on the slaves and therefore it's OK, but I feel nervous about putting
cluster configuration in catalogs.  Another reason for that is that if
synchronous replication is broken, then you need a way to change the
catalog, which involves committing a write transaction; there's a
danger that your efforts to do this will be tripped up by the broken
synchronous replication configuration.
