Note that Matt's terminology is a little bit confusing.
What he calls "mirroring" in HAMMER has nothing to do
with RAID-1 (like gmirror), but it is rather a kind of
replication. The "mirroring" feature allows replication
between local and/or remote file systems. So, yes, it
is intended to support clustering.
Clustering and SSI is the main goal of DragonFly BSD,

In my experience the term "transparent proxy" is an oxymoron (like jumbo
shrimp). "Transparent" proxies seem to vary from the distortions of a
funhouse mirror to barely translucent. I really, really dislike them
when trying to figure out the corrective lenses needed with each of them.
