Thinking about it and looking at how complicated it gets, maybe what
you'd really want, to make it clearer for the user, is the ability to
explicitly configure the behavior, either globally or per-resource. So
instead of having to tweak a set of variables that interact in complex
ways, you'd configure something like rule expressions,

  <restart repeat="3" />
  <migrate timeout="60s" />

So, try to restart the service 3 times, if that fails migrate the
service, if it still fails, fence the node.

(obviously the details and XML syntax are just an example)

This would then replace on-fail, migration-threshold, etc.
