RE: RAC de-clustering

 Kevin, is correct in that there will be additional overhead incurred
when you run either a RAC database in exclusive or a non-RAC database on
the RAC linked binaries.
That overhead may be acceptable if you want the option of switching back
to using RAC without having to relink the binaries.

at the risk of sounding like a broken record, init.ora settings DO NOT
disable RAC. With clsuter_database=FALSE, the server will still look for
clusterware due to libskgxp.
