This has been discussed in the channel. The problem is that the lradmin
stop also stops the monitor for the resource, but w/o invoking the
callback, so the CRM never knows.
It's been agreed that the LRM should generate the callback in case the
resource gets stopped/deleted manually.

Indeed. This is not a good idea and completely messes with the CRM.
It's been suggested that an "owner" field in the LRM data structures
could refuse commands wrt the resource if coming from a different owner,
unless forced and pring a warning still, which would at least hint at
the admin that he's doing something where he ought to know better.
Thanks for bringing this back to the dev list!
There's also a bugzilla on it now, but I forgot the number.
