We cluster across availability zones and haven't run into any problems
(yet).  I think federation is overkill.  You'd probably want to use
federation if you wanted to cluster across regions.  My only recommendation
is to run inside a VPC if you can that way you have control over private IP
addresses and hostnames.  That makes things a lot easier.
