Cisco UCS Management Interface configuration (1 or 2?)

I'm about to go live with my Cisco UCS blades, and I'm looking for some community feedback on a configuration question.

Part of this challenge, is that I haven't seen UCS Fabric Interconnects fail-over yet to see what impacts there are.  And I also don't know what the best practice is, since UCS architectures have been a so-called "game changer".
Nimble's documentation in KB-000202 has shown them using 1 Management interface in failover mode.
HOWEVER, this article (which has been extremely helpful), shows 2 management interfaces, each on a fabric, in failover mode.


What are users protecting themselves against, having two management interfaces in failover mode?
(I do plan on having my vMotion traffic on the management interface(s).)
