It seems to me that always using the remote server's prefixMap presumes
that only remote servers can create prefixes.  Given that an OID is a
standard data type, and not restricted to the schema (and therefore the
schema master), shouldn't it be the case that the creation of prefixes
is inherently multi-master, and therefore we should handle it locally on
each node?

Similarly, if two different schema masters (because of a migration)
somehow come to have a different prefixMap, how will we handle that if
we don't maintain our own local one?
