Thank you for your reply.

I don't fully understand everything being discussed in that thread, but
it sounds like bad things could happen once connectivity is restored. 
If DC1 and DC2 were both operational from a client perspective, but
unable to communicate with each other, I think the potential for bad
things would be even higher, because there could be confusion about
which Solr servers are leaders, as well as which ZK server is the leader.
