Is it OK to replicate FATA vdisks with EVA Continuous Access?

I've read in the forums some saying not to replicate FATA at all. Is this discouraged? I'm asking about FATA to FATA (not FC to FATA).

Does anyone have a link to fairly recent white paper or best practice guide for EVA Continuous Access?

Fata disk are slow and in general used for non critical apps or mainly for archiving or for history data,so if you have a non critical apps why would you want to replicate.

I agree with the point above and the latest word from HP is that they do NOT recommend FATA disks for use in a CA environment.
