Most of these cases already work if you are using the new _replicator api.

- local replications should always restart.
- replication with remote should restart only if the remote didn't
change and my network didn't change.

In other cases I need to rely on a mecanism to validate that I can
continue the replication. In that case I agree it can be automated and
we have different solution to do it. But that should never be a
default mecanism imo.
