Absolutely. I had always figured this would be what we would do first, before coming up with something more clever down the road. In particular, this allows filters to be pushed down and performed in parallel, which may significantly reduce the result which is passed back up to the leader. In many cases, I expect this would work just as well, if not better, than trying to actually do writes in parallel. Thanks! Stephen
