Replication for Disaster Recovery solution (feature request)

Recently I've upgraded to PVE 5.1 and I've seen the "Replication" new feature.

As I see, it's only possible to do zfs replicas between cluster nodes and for me it would be great to be able to do replicas between two diferent datacenters (production site and disaster recovery site).

As I currently use FreeNAS in both sites now I'm doing zfs replicas of some iscsi zvols and some datasets over WAN so I know it's posible to do this on my current network, but it would be great to be able to define a DR resource pool from the Proxmox interface (and add some critical VM to it) and create a Replication Job easily to keep the remote replica updated.

What do you think? Could you add this feature request to your TODO list?

I think this would be a good improvement to PVE.
