I do think we need some clarity about scope to keep the discussion sane. Also, we are not alone. There's a lot of work out there on resilient distributed systems. Just the other day, I came across this paper:

C. Colman-Meixner, C. Develder, M. Tornatore and B. Mukherjee, "A Survey on Resiliency Techniques in Cloud Computing Infrastructures and Applications," in IEEE Communications Surveys & Tutorials, vol. 18, no. 3, pp. 2244-2281, thirdquarter 2016.
doi: 10.1109/COMST.2016.2531104

Non-pay-walled version at:
http://users.atlantis.ugent.be/cdvelder/papers/2016/colmanmeixner2016.pdf

This is not a lightweight paper (38 pages, 236 references) and it shows that this topic is as much about systems engineering as about protocol design. How should we limit our discussion here?
