If this is a persistent replication, you'd need to secure the '_replicator' database against
unauthorized access, since the URL is a property of the replication document. The _replicator
database seems to be world-readable by default, but AFAIK you can lock it down the same way
you would other databases, i.e. by configuring its security object.
