You can, and I've seen it done, but it's really overkill. The database is
very, very small and doesn't change much. A periodic pg_dump might be a
better solution. Unless you really want to have your Bucardo configs go
out to other places realtime, which can be dangerous, as you will then
have multiple Bucardo daemons trying to act on the same servers. A way around
this is not not use full host names in your bucardo.db, and make sure you
look into host_safety_check setting.
