Hi Sylvain! Hope all is well with you :)

So, I actually don't think the two concepts (reservations and "isolated
instances") are competing ideas. Isolated instances are actually not
reserved. They are simply instances that have a condition placed on their
assignment to a particular compute node that the node must only be hosting
other instances of one or more specified projects (tenants).
