I haven't tried inter-DC replication, but I would be surprised if gossip
saturated a line with any decent bandwidth.

Assuming you're using RF >= 2 and a RackAware strategy, there should be
a node to properly write to for any row in either DC without need for
hinted hand-off. Writes should then succeed if you use SL.ONE, even with
a disconnect between DCs.
