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.
