This all sounds good to me.  One other thing I would note is the
importance of some sort of migration path.  We released it, so we need
to carry those users along into the Ironic world.  As long as that is
covered in the H development timeframe, I wouldn't have a problem
marking nova-baremetal deprecated in H.
