[sheepdog-users] is --nohalt dangerous?

I have a small cluster with only 3 nodes, and I want to store 3 copies:

# cluster format -copies 3

But as soon as one node dies the IO gets halted. To prevent that one can use:

# cluster format -copies 3 -nohalt

The question is why that is not the default behavior? Is that dangerous? If so, why?
