This is really not a good idea. You may rather want to consider one of these
1)Running read-only on the slave during maintenance on the master
2)Use cluster software to run an HA master
3)Upgrade to 2.4 and run mirrormode or multi-master

If you are processing a replication log, you should use the identity that is
listed in the updatedn parameter on the target. It is the only identity
allowed to write to operational attributes.
