Duh. Obviously, the former is one layer less complex: it doesn't have 

I'm not sure if you're really trying to pull wool over my eyes or you 
have it all over yours. How about
  cat "linuxha1 httpd smb" > /etc/ha.d/haresources
  /etc/init.d/heartbeat start
on both nodes
  where exactly do all these lines go? -- cib.xml? Where are the tags, 
then? Some other file you need to run through something before you stat 
the cluster? Are they commands you type in some shell after you start 
the cluster? WFT is 'ocf:' and why is it different from 'lsb:'. Or 
'inf:'? WTF does it take 1 minute to type up what previously took 15 
seconds (@20WPM)? WTF is 'prefer-ha1'? -- why is not just 'prefer', is 
there a 'prefer-ha2'? Why is '-ha1' not referenced anywhere else in the 
config? Exactly which part of all this says 'run ifup eth0:0, then start 
httpd, then samba on linuxha1' in one simple easy to read sentence?

It's not about syntax. It's not about advanced features. It's about a 
new user setting up a simple stupid active/passive failover pair.
