The simplest solution is already built into the Horizon framework. Any panel or dashboard can be disabled by a check to determine if a service is available in the service catalog. Since there is an inherent above/under cloud separation here, the Tuskar service should not be available above cloud. Additionally, the same permission mechanism can trigger off roles, also in the service catalog. I see this as a simple implementation detail.
