Just so long as the OP is understanding that this implies taking an
explicit decision to accept the "misbehavior" you will see as a
result. I.e., the reason people survive not doing repairs in some
cases is, as in your case, that they can actually live with the
consequences such as old data "magically" re-appearing permanently.

For one thing, RR will only touch data that is read. And not even all
data that is read at that (e.g. range slices don't imply repair).
