So the server create operation currently has a flag to say whether to
return a bunch of information
about the server being created (although we don't yet know if it will
succeed), OR return
a reservation_id which can then be used as a filter for getting information
about a server.

If we made this reservation_id just happen to be the same as the task id
handle returned then I think this
would be a pretty clean change (I don't know how this fits into the current
design?). The existing
reservation_id is a bit tasky-looking already.
