I don't think so. It is just a part of modern Linux system environment.
corosync is not supposed to mount the root filesystem or /proc –
mounting /dev/shm is not its responsibility either.

BTW  The excerpt above assumes there is a /dev/shm entry in /etc/fstab.
Should this be added there by the corosync init script too?
