What problem do you want to solve exactly? Only more nodes? Or nodes
between physically distant data centers? 

An alternative plan would be to write a management tool which
can deal with multiple (corosync) clusters. I always wanted such 
tool, and I guess it is not really hard to write one.

Things like HA failover would still be restricted to a single
corosync cluster. What do you think about this idea?
