Indeed. This fact is central to the reason why replicating back-config is not practical.

Who says it would be a single replicated database for all the replicas? Since it is just another database configured on the master, different replicas could replicate their configurations as necessary from different config backends on the master. It solves a number of problems to have the capability to do it. One could then update the configurations of multiple replicas very trivially, particularly if one was, say, running a company that had different replica configurations depending on locations around the globe. No need to individually update 10, 50, 100 or whatever number for each particular location.
