It will get COP2 messages, but.... CO2's aren't guaranteed. With replicated
volumes this doesn't matter that much because when a COP2 is missed the VV's
will be in conflict and resolution is triggered which does the truncation.

There is even a special case in resolution for missed COP2's, if the
store-id's are identical a missed cop is assumed. This is nicked weak-equality
in the resolution sources.
