_DRBD_ requires no such thing.

if there is anything restricting you,
it is the heartbeat v2 ocf resource agent.
please ask on the the linux-ha list whether someone
already improved that one to do more what you think it should.

if not, go ahead, and improve that resource agent yourself,
and sent in some patches.  it is just a shell script.
