You are introducing unpredictable delays and possible 
retries/disconnects into kernel layers that aren't very well prepared to 
deal with them.  It may mostly work, but I assume you wouldn't be asking 
if you were happy with it.  There might be something you could do with 
mirroring over DRDB if you are willing to duplicate the disk space on 
both sides - but you could use rsync for that too.
