This would need a _lot_ of testing! I strongly suggest leaving the
downlist messaging in to avoid regressions.

You break on-wire compatibility by removing the downlist not by
merging the events to the client applications
(on-wire == totem messages to other nodes not ipc message to application).

The problem with that is what happens when you are upgrading and you
have a cluster with a mix of versions - they will not aggree on the
same cpg group membership.
