for cases where people want to run C* across multiple DCs for disaster recovery et cetera where normal operations only happen in the first DC (e.g. no writes/reads happen in the remove DC under normal operation) neither LOCAL_QUORUM or EACH_QUORUM really suffices.
Consider the case with RF of DC1:3 DC2:2
LOCAL_QUORUM doesn't provide any guarantee that data is in the remote DC.
EACH_QUORUM requires that both nodes in the remote DC are up.
It would be useful in some situations to be able to specify a strategy where LOCAL_QUORUM is used for the local DC and at least one in a remote DC (and/or at least in each remote DC).
