That's actually a pretty interesting idea, though I'd submit the
alternate design of the client only having one URL, and having the
server either 'passing through' write operations to the upstream server,
or issuing some sort of 'referral' to the client informing it to re-try
against a different server.

My reasons for the alternate suggestion are:

1. Simplified user experience, they do not have to specify two URLs that
must match.

2. Gives read-only server a hint that it should be looking for new
changes to sync.
