I posted a message to the mailing list when I first began work on the
subnet mode keyword, asking if anyone had a suggestion about if it
should be an API extension or can be a change to the core API.

In the months since, we have iterated on the commit, and have continued
working on IPv6 functionality in Neutron.
Nachi recently -1'd the review, saying that it needs to be an API
I disagree that it should be an API extension, since I have added
behavior that sets the subnet_mode keyword to default with the attribute
is not specified, for backwards compatibility. Any plugin that inherits
from the NeutronDbPluginV2 class will have backwards compatibility.
