I agree.

I think the cluster membership mechanism built on top of this would be
an excellent topic for CGL to contribute on.  It seems like the OSS
solutions available for clustering mostly assume static, stable clusters
(if I'm wrong about this, I'd love to know!).

SAF's APIs supposedly cover some of this, but I haven't gotten to go
through them in detail yet.

There's also a Nokia internal thing I'm looking into...
