Just to keep in mind: All HBase read/write requests are made via the

Yes, you can guarantee this to a certain extent. In case data-locality
is absent in some tasks (due to scheduling constraints), a few blocks
may be read out by the RS-node's DNs, but shouldn't be a big impact
given that a good scheduler in MR usually helps avoid having to do
that.

Alternatively you can also consider running low-slotted TTs to use up
the RS machines but in a safer way.
