Thanks for address the issues. About the bad state for fixed_ips,
floating_ips, i think we could make the user_id column=NULL when creating
the quota usage and reservation, so the usages for fixed_ips and
floating_ips will be  synced within the project.
Does this make sense?

> adds the ability to track quota usage on a per user basis within a project.
