On the contrary, if you reread the message to which you were
previously replying, it's was about the unnecessary complexity of
OVS (and Neutron in general) for deployments which explicitly
_don't_ need and can never take advantage of self-service
networking. The implication being that Neutron needs a "just connect
everything to a simple flat network on a bridge I can easily debug"
mode which hides or eliminates those complexities instead.
