This is correct for versions of DRBD starting with 0.7. The assumption that 
DRBD only works for filesystems, and that it is DRBD's job to mount the 
filesytem went away in version 0.7.

For versions before 0.7 you have to include them in the /etc/fstab to get 
them mounted.

It is true that in these older versions you *can* put in the Filesystem 
resource agent if you leave out the entry in /etc/fstab.  But, this causes 
the datadisk (note the name change) script to exit with an error.
