Ok. I started out with 2.0.8 so how should I know :)

You can set it for the group, you can also set it for each primitive.
If you want the group to start/stop, it is the easiest way to just set
it for the group. That's what I meant to say.

Your user's guide. Sure you can do that.

The master_slave configuration from the user's guide will not work. It
misses at least the really important "globally_unique" (=false)
meta_attribute for the master_slave instance. Not sure about the
defaults for the other meta_attributes usually configured with the
master_slave resource actually.
