The main reason for it to be a REST service is that cinder needs to speak to it.

Basically a bare metal node contributes to *both* compute and storage
pools, and so both nova and cinder need to manage that - to reserve
capacity; there is no reason for nova to be special cased and own it
more than cinder.
