Well, their big complaint about binary replication is that a bug can
spread from a master to all slaves, which doesn't happen with statement
level replication.  If that type of corruption is your primary worry,
and you can ignore the worries about statement level replication, then
it makes sense.  Of course, the big tragedy is that statement level
replication has known unfixable(?) failures, while binary replication
failures are caused by developer-introduced bugs.

In some ways, people worry about the bugs they have seen, not the bugs
they haven't seen.
