The RPC API is meant to be internal.

Why not use the REST APIs?  Plenty of infrastructure exists to work with 
rest apis in varoius languages/framewroks.  For example, heat doesn't 
circumvent the REST APIs of OpenStack services and communicate with nova 
directly, but uses the nova rest API.  Why would an application that is 
not integrated into OpenStack behave this way when those that are 
Integrated use rest APIs direclty?
