Oracle is misrepresenting, in that case. The question is not about
whether some mechanism is being called stonith. One can refer it as
"blah blah". In cluster file systems, one mechanism is being referred
as stonith. And oracle claims that they have it, despite not having
the mechanism that is being referred to as 'stonith' or 'blah blah'
(it does not matter which term one picks up).

Depends on your definition of "stonith" I guess.  :)  Oracle does seem to
like redefining terms (like, say, "grid" computing...)  Seems like the
linux-ha project was using the term before Oracle though and they usually
refer to hardware (power) based solutions.  And most other people seem to
mean the same thing.  This technique is not used by RAC directly (although
Oracle can integrate with vendor-based clusterware that might support it).
Oracle clusterware itself definitely doesn't do that though.
