To be on a safe side in such cases you'd probably want to enable 
additional monitor for a "Stopped" role. Default one covers only 
"Started" role. The same thing as for multistate resources, where you 
need several monitor ops, for "Started/Slave" and "Master" roles.
But, this will increase a load.
And, I believe cluster should reprobe a resource on all nodes once you 
change target-role back to "Started".
