IMO: definitely. One of the reasons syncrepl is designed as it is is because 
you don't need to change the provider's config when you add or remove 
consumers. (Of course, this was a greater concern back before we had dynamic 
config for OpenLDAP.) Only the actual consumer should need to know about its 
replication configuration.
