Well, installing ASM on non-RAC node requires CSS daemon and it creates OCR on a normal file and it's marked as localconfig in ocr.loc. I guess it might create voting disk somewhere as well. On the other hand, how can I put it... I would seriously doubt it's worth to add the complexity of CRS for something that can be handled in more elegant way.

I wander if you can use voting disk and ocr on as regualer files instead of raw device ? this may help to install single instance node database , as be rac ready and it may be enable us to use srvctl as tool to start/stop database from remote in automatic manner.
