Well yes..

what you describe is a multi-site cluster (as we agreed to call it at
LPC 2010 http://etherpad.osuosl.org/lpc2010-high-availability-clustering).

There is no infrastructure to support this setup yet and to avoid
services to be running at the same time on cluster A and B.

you can still do a setup that involves cluster A to be active and B in
hot-standby (for example cluster B would have no rgmanager running but
everything else can be ready).

Manual failover has to be done by sysadmin between clusters. Protection
against nodes failing within the same cluster is still operational as-is.
