We've seen a use case for arbitrary attributes in Keystone objects. Cloud
administrator might want to store some metadata along with a user object.
For example, customer name/id and couple additional fields for contact
information. The same might be applied to projects and  domains.

So this is a very nice feature that should be kept around. It might be
wrapped in some way (like in explicit unchecked "metadata" attribute) in a
new API version though.
