No.  cman and gulm do the same thing, so only one of them is needed.
gulm also does fencing a little differnt than cman.  Cman talks to the
fenced program to fence a node, gulm execs fence_node.

All of the nodes must be listed. (how else would you fence them if
needed?)

Mostly.  The <gulm> section cannot change while gulm is running anywhere
in  the cluster.  The other sections can change when ever.
