That is correct. Note that we merged code in Rocky so that this should
actually start to work. We have only tested some specific scenarios
(namely scaling one controller to three), but this should start working
with rocky and feedback is welcome on that.

That is correct, with one caveat, we generally support an odd number of
cluster nodes in total, for quorum reasons.

The same services that can be separated from the Pacemaker services are the ones that can be moved to other roles and don't have the same scaling constraints. For instance, you could probably add X additional API worker nodes in a custom role, and they would be added as back-ends behind HAProxy, but you couldn't add any HAProxy nodes, since Pacemaker manages the virtual IPs that HAProxy binds to. Unfortunately, Pacemaker manages Rabbit MQ, so you are stuck with 3 nodes.
