Thanks, that makes sense.

I'm actually managing my config with a homegrown perl script that merges
chunks of XML together and then installs a new CIB. This way I can keep
a resource definition and the relevant constraints together in the same
file, which keeps things clearer for me, and since I have four clusters
that all run similar services, it simplifies management since I can just
copy the identical pieces of XML around and use templates for the rest.
