So two regions won't share the same database?

way of thinking, we must be able to assign an object store to a region to avoid transfer of
large assets across WAN links.  Furthermore, it greatly reduces availability of the object
store cluster because the management server/ssvm may attempt to connect to an object store
over a WAN link when co-located instance is available.  Why isn't assignment of an object
store to a region supported?
