What you want is AFAIK not possible in a single database with current code. 
Even if you want to replicate only to a subtree of a database the whole 
database is handled as a read-only shadow copy. 
You might try to split your data to multiple database and glue them together 
with backglue. But there seem to be other issues. See e.g. ITS#4626 or recent 
posts on this list.
