You wouldn't necessarily have to ban resources from nodes that can't
reach the external network. It would be enough to make them prefer
the location that has connection. So if both lose connection  one side
would still stay up.
Not to depend on something really external you might use the
router to your external network as ping target.
In case of fencing - triggered by whatever - and a potential fence-race
you might use the rather new feature priority-fencing-delay (give the node
that is running valuable resources a benefit in the race) or go for
fence_heuristics_ping (pseudo fence-resource that together with a
fencing-topology prevents the node without access to a certain IP
from fencing the other node).
