I don't know about ocfs2, but using the dlm without cman is definitely possible right now.  It should work. I tried it out a few months ago.  We even have a tutorial outlining how to do gfs2 + dlm + pacemaker 1.1.8 + corosync 2.0.  http://www.clusterlabs.org/doc/en-US/Pacemaker/1.1/html/Clusters_from_Scratch/  Take a look at the active/active section.

Hope that helps.
