True, I do see your point.

I do however think, that if you do pick the ML2 plugin as your
core_plugin, it should have some mechanism drivers enabled by default. You
shouldn't have to pick core_plugin, then be forced to pick
mechanism_drivers. I'd rather see some mechanism_drivers already
enabled, and if you have a difference in opinion, set mechanism_drivers
in your local.conf.
