ASM Dependency on VIP and 10.2.0.3

Hi,
Currently running 10.2.0.2 RAC with ASM. I have 2 questions (hoping someone has 
experienced this):

1. A public network failure results in a relocation of the vip. The relocation 
of the vip results in the corresponding asm instance shutting down, which in 
turn stops the rdbms instance associated with it. There is a workaround in 
metalink, that discusses how to remove this dependency (for releases under 
10.2.0.3). 
I was wondering if anyone has used this workaround? I also wanted to know if 
once this dependency has been removed, and there is a public network failure - 
once this (public network failure) is resolved does the vip automatically 
relocate back to its original node or does this still need to be done manually. 
Apparently in 10.2.0.3 once the public network issue is fixed the vip will 
automatically relocate back - since asm no longer has a dependency it and the 
rdbms instance will not need to be started.

2. Can or Has anyone tested public network failures in 10.2.0.3 - does it work 
as advertised ?    

Thanks
