That's "multi-master replication"...  at least without any

Some might say you are searching for a solution to an
unsolvable problem.  :-)

Well, you might read IETF LDUP WG I-Ds.  They talk of ways to
detect and resolve data inconsistencies.  Many of the I-Ds

or other expired I-D repository to locate them.
