I've found a couple of replication related issues, but they're not as

Alternatively, pick another non-replication issue, if you'd like.

Right. Try to create a small test case for it.
Tests are under mysql-test/

I suspect that it might be a risky feature to have. So it might be that
we won't implement it after all.
