Understood, that's why I'm looking for input.  I'd like to come up with a
reliable system, even though it's necessarily going to be a hair or two
behind the 'live' databases.

A mirror would help if the primary server was unreachable.

The problem being reported NOW is the  spewage of data that claims
to be correct.  Unless you run your mirror in a "pull, wait 8 hours
for verification, and THEN commit" mode, the mirror will be spewing
the same broken data.
