[openstack-dev] [cinder]Question for availability_zone of cinder

So this has come up a few times. My question is, does having one node
serving several backends really form multiple AZs? Not really, the c-vol
node becomes a single point of failure.

There might be value in moving the AZ setting into the per-backend
configurables, if it doesn't work there already, for testing if nothing
else, but I do worry that it encorages people to misunderstand or worse
intentionally fake multiple AZs.
