You mean "a resource which is stopping by failed action would start
by contraries"?

With on_fail="standby", certainly it seems that we "forget" the node is supposed 
to stay standby.
Because the failed node status which crm_mon shows changes like this,
"online" --[resource failed]--> "standby" --[resource restart(F/O)]--> "online".
Then I tried to give raise to the behavior like that with on_fail="stop",
but I couldn't.
On-fail-stopped resource stayed stopped even if I deleted the fail-count of it.
When I restarted the Heartbeat service on failed node,
the resource restarted (on other node) at last...

It sounds a large-scale modification...
