With a two-node, quorum is effectively useless, as a single node is

That's what qdiskd is for. It's also useful in larger clusters.

Agreed, but there are 2 caveats that need addressing;

1. qdisk requires a SAN (DRBD will not do).
2. qdisk works up to 16 nodes only.

Also, without proper fencing, things will not fail properly. This
means that you are in somewhat of an undefined area.

Undefined = likely to cause data corruption.

The OP needs to sort this out first before going on to anything else.

Agreed. :)
