I'm not sure why you would want to select one view of a primary
component (aka quorum membership) with one node, and another primary
component with another node.  Then as the nodes make decisions, they
would be inconsistent (ie: consider GFS one node would think writes were
ok, while another may not...  shouldn't they agree?).

Could you explain the use case?
