Definitely for that feature.

I have spent the last six years managing an SGI Clustered XFS setup.
The heartbeat for CXFS tends to run on a completely private network - a set of dumb switches, and interfaces which carry no other traffic. You can define a second  network to fail over to should the primary heartbeat network go down, which in my case was the normal user access LAN.
