I think this sounds reasonable. Don't deprecate nova-network, let it be 
what it is and look at deprecating the neutron proxying (other than what 
occurs during the server create flow).

It doesn't seem helpful at this point to have neutron users call through 
nova to do things with neutron.

We could run this idea by for operator feedback to see if there are 
issues with it we haven't considered.
