you shared the use cases where the extra complexity is required?  When does writing to Cassandra
which then dedupes and writes to Kafka a preferred design then using Kafka and simply writing
to Cassandra?

From the reading of the proposal, it seems bring functionality similar to MySQL's binlog to
Kafka connector. This is useful for many applications that want to be notified when certain
(or any) rows change in the database primarily for a event driven application architecture.

Implementing this in the database layer means there is a standard approach to getting a change
notification stream. Downstream subscribers can then decide which notifications to act on.

LinkedIn's databus is similar in functionality - <>
However it is for heterogenous datastores.

Interesting idea. I did go over the proposal briefly. I concur with Jon about adding more
use-cases to clarify this feature's potential use-cases.
