You say that we need to separate it, but you don't say why.

This intruiges me, since the triple-o (openstack [deployed by and] on
openstack) project's entire focus is being able to deploy all of
Openstack using Heat. So network services like load balancers will sit
within the the bare metal layer cloud and be managed via Heat.

To me that means either a) you know something we don't, and we're
doomed to failure, or b) there is no need to separate auto scaling
into the (1) and (2) you mention.

Can you help me understand why you say we need to separate auto
scaling into two cases?
