[Pdns-users] MySQL Multi-Master configuration?

I'm thinking of setting up a multi-master MySQL backend, where the masters are geographically distributed and run a local instance of PowerDNS each.

The theory is that it would provide HA, and also allow more than one name server for my domain, e.g.
and the master-master replication would make sure they stay consistent.

I could put a PowerAdmin at http://ns1.example.com/ and https://ns2.example.com/, and using either would be equivalent.

I have not been able to find any usable information on this setup. So my question is whether this idea sounds sane, and what the obvious pitfalls might be? Experience from anybody with a setup in any way comparable would be very helpful …
