Ah ok, I read the change of the interval as a possible workaround/fix, not
as addition to an "update". And yeah I agree about "update" being a good
solution. No argument there! :)

But as mentioned in my other post, this would keep the "addOwnFramework"
being called, resulting in the extra "set" calls each 10 seconds?

I agree, something like a TTL is needed to keep the setup error-proof wrt
network issues and even software crashes. But reading the documentation of
etcd I am a bit confused.
At [1] it mentions: "NOTE: Keys can only be expired by a cluster leader, so
if a machine gets disconnected from the cluster, its keys will not expire
until it rejoins."
This is not something which I would expect...
