Quick note - I want to keep this discussion a bit high-level and not to 
get into big implementation details. For everyone, please, let's agree 
in this thread on the direction and approach and we can start follow-up 
threads with bigger details of how to get those things done.

As for below listed features for v0 - it is the smallest set of what we 
have to have in the UI - if there is some delay in other services, we 
have to put attention there as well. But I don't think there is anything 
blocking us at the moment.

I am not aware of any special requirements, but I will let experts to 
answer here...

Correct. For the whole Icehouse. I don't think we can get multiple 
deployments in time, there are much more important features.

I think it is # nodes/role and image as well. Though images might be 
hardcoded for the very first iteration. Soon we should be able to let 
user assign images to roles.

Some of that is part of above mentioned, some a bit later down the road 
(not far away though). We need all of that, but let's enable user to 
deploy first and we can add next features after we get something working
