I use my heartbeat + drbd setup without stonith, it's not necessary, 
just nice to have in a situation where one system locks up. Otherwise, 
it's possible you'll run into a situation where one side is in some way 
disabled, but it refuses to give up the resources. It just means you'll 
need to intervene manually.

Just FYI, stonith isn't there to shut them down, it will play fine with 
NUT or apcupsd, stonith deals with a completely different scenario.
