Ok, that certainly seems to have rgmanager:

No. The replication in the new HA scheme is done over AMQP (over 
inter-broker aka 'federation' links).

No, I believe it runs on all the nodes participating in the cluster. 
These daemons all communicate such that they can determine when one node 
is 'down', shut it out the system and attempt to recover it.

No, I don;t think so yet. Though it is undergoing testing right now by 
an actual project.
