This solution seems much more elegant and obvious to me. A cli
(crm_standby?) interface would be ideal.
It feels weird to mix setup interfaces (through crm_standby or through the
config file) to manipulate the same node attribute. Isn't it possible to set
the standby instance attribute of a node **before** it is added to the cluster?

It is not really straight forward to understand why you need to edit a second
different nvpair to exit the standby mode... :/
