As was mentioned, you can have multiple cluster filesystem ORACLE_HOMEs, but that's sometimes challenging to manage and I don't think it provides any great benefit over local ORACLE_HOMEs unless you have very large clusters (greater than 15 or 20 nodes).

You may also want to consult an excellent recent whitepaper written on this topic by an excellent technician at Oracle.
