Thanks for this.

A question remains; Is it possible that:

<nvpair id="cib-bootstrap-options-maintenance-mode"
name="maintenance-mode" value="false"/>

Could be set, and a given node could be:

<node id="1" uname="mk-a02n01">
  <instance_attributes id="nodes-1">
    <nvpair id="nodes-1-maintenance" name="maintenance" value="off"/>

That is to say; If the cluster is set to maintenance mode, does that
mean I should consider all nodes to also be in maintenance mode,
regardless of what their individual maintenance mode might be set to?
