In our organisation where different databases in a RAC is billed separately 
depending on the resources used (core) we usually run each database under 
different OS user and grid also runs as different OS user. 

This will help us to sum up the pcpu used by each process owners and calculate 
percentage CPU used by each os user. We make sure resources taken for grid 
don't come in our calculation and billing  by running under different OS user.

That is also my experience.  Much pain, no gain.
