So for Ironic this is a moderately low priority thing right now - and
certainly I think it should be optional (what the default is is a
different discussion).

It's low priority because there are -so- many other concerns about
sharing bare metal machines between tenants that don't have
comprehensive mutual trust, that it's really not viable today (even on
relatively recent platforms IMNSHO).
