This is something that has come up in Neutron discussions before. There are
two issues here:
1. Performance: it will require a round-trip to Keystone on every request.
2. If the Neutron keystone user in unprivileged and the request context is
unprivileged, we might not actually be allowed to tell if the tenant exists.
The first we can deal with, but the second is going to be an issue that we
might not be able to get around.
How about as a temporary solution, we just confirm that the input is a UUID
so names don't get used?
