Making sure I understand the problem here:

For couches that may not have a fixed IP/DNS/port combination, we need
a sticky way of identifying replication endpoints, right.

The API approach makes sense, perhaps something you get back in GET / ?

I think this won't work however for anybody with a round-robin DNS or
loadbalancer in front a multiple (possibly geographically spread)
clusters (whether BC or normal couch). Not sure how common a scenario
this is though.
