Agree, it is more useful and effective in 8 stage:) Stack still can be 
used in some simple migration without changing any configuration,
for sure the meta data must be converted/replaced to 9 format.
But for two clusters (2 nodes per site) in long distance(cities), only 
need to replicate the same data once to the DR, which is more 
efficiency configure in a plain multiple nodes when the bandwidth 
hit the bottleneck.

And stack is worked with 9. It should not fail/drop connection due to 
an internal call for snapshot of resync target from kernel space.
