There is a failover option in copy. Why is no one discussing that?

Correct me if I misunderstood, but failover= in copy lets me define a class when the copy fails, doesn't it? So in order to re-try the copy from a different server, I would have to restate the same copy with the failover server, activated by my failover class? Or could I do something along the following lines:

   AllowRedefinitionOf = ( server )
   AddInstallable = ( server_fail )
   server = ( primaryhost )
      server = ( failoverhost )

   $(server)/some/file dest=/some/file failover=server_fail

Would cfengine's second pass take into account the changed definition, or not? That would actually be quite nice for a single layer failover scenario.
