If I run a SELECT, I'm going to receive the latest data per the read 
conditions (ONE, TWO, QUORUM), regardless of location of the client 
connection. If using network aware topology, you'll get the most current 
data in that DC.

Notifying connected clients about random INSERT or UPDATE statements 
that ran somewhere seems to be far, far outside the scope of storing 
data. Just configure your client to SELECT in the manner that you need.

I may not fully understand your problem and could be simplifying things 
in my head, so feel free to expand.
