I like this idea.... though if that URL vanishes you can't connect to ZK. The bootstrap problem is hard.
Another issue is adding more ensembles without reconfiguring all clients. It might be nice to connect to a 'profile' and have the client persist hosts in that profile. This way you can new machines (ZK servers) to the profile, wait for all ZK nodes to DL the new profile, then safely shutdown the old machines. The local ZK nodes would need some type of local persistent storage though.
