The restriction is still in place but will go away in the not so distant future.

I'd recommend starting with what you have now, using either the
connect/disconnect strategy, or PAIR sockets, but if abstract this
sufficiently that you can move to a better design later with minimum
pain.  It may be that connect/disconnect works fine.  Failover should
be extremely rare in any case.  Also it's not clear that moving a
socket between threads will avoid the need to reconnect in any case
(though it may be hidden).
