Is that because, in a cluster one JR node might get an event that an Item exists, but its
not yet present on the backend its connected to, and there are no guarantees over the order
in which items appear, so, for instance, the hierarchy manager might find a child but not
the parent?

Do you have any pointers to the discussions so I can go and read ?
