you can do that.
but I'd rather go with an extra lv for the meta data ("external").

this does not make any sense.

it seems to me that your understanding
of what drbd does for you is wrong.

what exactly do you think drbd is?
 (please answer this, so we can correct you)

what do you mean by
 "do some modification or add more files on the filesystem"?

why do you think you'd need to mount the LV to modify some files?
(mounting, even accessing the lower level device is a big no-no!)
