It looks like it will work fine.

Yup, you certainly can do that.

Note that multiple "readers" from a single EXT3 file system will not be
reliable, either - so if you intend to mount on multiple servers (at all
- not just read-only), then you should use GFS.

If you are not trying to do the above, then the only practical advantage
GFS gives you is the potential for slightly faster recovery (due to the
fs already being mounted).

For most people in this case, ext3 is fine.
