I wouldn't go quite so far as to say that they have security implications, 
but I definitely agree that these are solutions of last resort, and that 
any live load-balanced solution is infinitely preferable to a stand-by 
solution.  Which, IMHO, is unlikely to ever work as hoped for.  I was just 
answering the question at hand, rather than the meta-question of whether 
the question being asked was the right question.  :-)
