I'm afraid not. Really "rabbitmqctl forget_cluster_node" should be able 
to cause down slaves to come back as new masters, which would be the 
right solution to this. I'm hoping that we'll be able to do that for 
3.4.0, but it's a somewhat intrusive change. The bug number for this 
branch will be 26191, so you can keep an eye on it in future (currently 
there's nothing there).

Cheers, Simon
