About Slide 8 and the odd/even number of nodes...
what I meant is that on Slide 8, if you loose DC1, then your cluster will
not be able to recover after DC1 comes back as there will be no clear
and you will have:
-  3 ZK nodes with up-to-date data (that is DC2+DC3) and
-  3 ZK nodes with out-of-date data (DC1).

But, if you had only 2 ZK nodes in DC1, then you could afford to loose one
of either DC1, or DC2 or DC3 and the cluster will be able to recover and be
