The issue was that resources were migrated away from any node with an offline fencing device. I can see how that is desirable, but in our case this is essentially a single point of failure. How are others managing this?

I am not sure I understand the issue. So node did not fail and remained
online but pacemaker migrated resources off this node? And what exactly
"offline fencing device" means?

Sounds you have some constraints that do it. You need to post logs at
least from DC from the point stonith resource failed as well as your
actual configuration with all constraints.
