2. Please, write a more informative summary. It is not a commit header, and is not limited
with one line and 50 symbols. For example, see https://github.com/tarantool/tarantool/blob/gh-3328-new-iproto/doc/rfc/3328-wire_protocol.md.

3. Same - it is not a commit message. You must not write using imperative mood. Users, which will read this, do
not know that it IPROTO_SUBSCRIBE command.

Currently each Tarantool instance will download from all peers all records in their WAL excepts records with instance id equal to the self instance id. Instead, it could send a subscribe request to its peers with server ids which are not present in other subscribe requests.

4. RFC either must not contain implementation, or it must be at the end of the document.

the map by server id. Iterate over each server in the list of peers, and assign its  id to this server's SUBSCRIBE request. Assign all the remaining ids in \_cluster table to the last peer (alternatively, if there are many ids in

5. A new user does not know what it _cluster table, and it is a space, not a table.

6. Where are alternatives? If no one, then delete this template, please.
