Yes, this sounds like the right way to do it.  As long as we implement
step 4 to be address scope aware, what you describe here will work.

There is some flexibility to attach multiple subnet pools to the same
address scope.  This would allow a particular tenant to have exclusive
access to a pool under the right scope.
