"They seem more appropriately descriptive to me than master/slave. "

Not to me. "Master/replica" implies a rather different relationship than "master/slave".

Of all of the suggested replacements for master/slave, the only one I've seen that I think would actually work (in terms of being nonconfusing and being a reasonably accurate descriptor) is "Dom/sub".
