No, only one set is needed. I am not sure what is preferred, but you can
use either primitive or clone in resource constraints.

Those two constraints are redundant and they do not do what you expect.
Location constraints are not related to master selection. They just
define which nodes are eligible to run clone instance; which instance
will be promoted is defined by master score which is usually set by
You can define rules to set master score, but I do not know how it will
interact with explicit scores set by other means.
