Whenever you create a new local replica of a database, Notes automatically adds the database to the Replicator page so that future scheduled replications will include this new replica.  For a person who uses only 1 Location, this is fine and works as it should be.
But if you have mulitple locations that point to different ideas, this becomes problematic because it causes the new databases to try to be replicated in all locations.  This will cause issues when you are using a location that uses a different ID that doesn't have access to the server that this new replica is replicating with.  This is especially important to consultants to have multiple clients that they replicate with.
I think it would be more beneficial to enable replication for the new replica only for the current location and allow users to enable it when they switch to other locations.

Here is a similar idea that should probably be linked:

I think it should be a little more full featured: You should be able to get a list of all the locations for a replica and checkoff those which do and don't replicate the selected DB.
