Agreed that it would be simpler and is definitely possible.
However, consider that having a Heat in each region means Heat is more
resilient to failure. So focusing on a way to make multiple Heat's
collaborate, rather than on a way to make one Heat talk to two regions
may be a more productive exercise.
