So is the current general practice to connect to a known node, e.g. by ip address?

If so, what happens if that node is down?  Is the entire cluster effectively broken at that point?
 
Or do clients simply maintain a list of nodes a just connect to the first available in the list?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers
Chris

I don't think voting is going to help. Voting doesn't do anything to
develop consensus and it seems pretty clear that no consensus exists
here.

It's entirely possible that you've identified a problem that others
can't see, or haven't yet encountered. I don't see it, but then maybe
I'm just thick.

Either way, if you think this is important, the onus is on you to
demonstrate the merit of your idea and contrib/ or a github project is
one way to do that (the latter has the advantage of not needing to rely
on anyone else).
