Having a human to intervene

Sometimes time is of the essence with a failover. If you do it correctly and fast you might see zero disruption and when it's the storage that is at issue then even delaying for a few seconds can cause you to lose the LUN or cause the application to go awry.

Maybe just a bit more intelligence in the failover, done well it could make more intelligent failover decisions with a human just needing to disable the system if there is known engineering works going on that might accidentally trigger it.
