I"m not privy to what the the contents of the presentation were, so I'm not sure what you mean by Single Instance cluster database.

I have created a single instance RAC database for various reasons (the biggest being a vendor that won't certify for RAC, but we want to run on our standard environment). I had toyed with the idea , since we have the clusterware, ASM etc, of doing just this, but figured it would take me longer to discover the issues, and start things up manually. What I've begun doing is creating a 2-instance RAC database and shutting down one instance and disabling that instance in the clusterware resource. In case of node failure, things are easily brought up and swapped.
