[PVE-User] proxmox serverfarm - how?

the question for me is, what can go wrong this way or in what way
clustering conflicts with the idea of running a "temporary server farm"
which is shutdown completely for long periods.
what happens for example if i set "pvecm expected 1" and
startup/shutdown different individual servers or pairs of servers? i
think that won't fit...
when setting "pvecm expected 1" , wouldn't we need to know which
server(s) of the farm was being used last and shutdown last?
so, rethinking about this - doesn't it make sense to have something up
and running independently of that farm for maintaining cluster
what about adding one or two rasberry pi or two virtual maschines "on
some other, independent pve systems" as quorum/qdevice , setting "pvecm
expected 1 or 2" then and have proper backup for these ? can we
use/install virtual instances of proxmox for this ?
