If, for any reason, you encounter a split brain situation in your cluster and you have a shared storage but no STONITH configured chances are very good that a filesystem/device will be mounted/accessed twice. This will lead to data corruption and maybe data loss.
SUSE will take no responsibility if you encounter any data corruption or data loss, if you operate a heartbeat cluster with a shared storage without properly tested and configured STONITH.
Using a heartbeat cluster with shared storage but without working STONITH puts your data at risk.
