While it's true that there won't be an in-tree driver that supports the API
for this release cycle, we have a commercial driver that supports it (

Having the API standardized in Havana would ensure that client support is
immediately available for our users as well as for the other hypervisor
vendors should they release a supporting driver in the next 9 months. I
believe there is precedent for publishing a nova API for those purposes.
