thanks for bringing this up, with "pluggability" comes responsibility it 

there is also a conflicting (yet valid) interest in keeping the number 
of services deployed in the overcloud to a minimum to avoid even longer 
CI run times

it isn't really a case of HA vs non-HA, with the newer HA architecture 
we're only managing via pcmk those openstack services which need to be 
(including recent additions like manila-share or cinder-backup) and 
these should be tested in the HA scenario which IMHO at this point could 
become a default

it looks to me that a scenario in the experimental queue deploying a 
"full" overcloud could work?

there is a similar requirement for testing 'competing' services, like 
swift and ceph/rgw which we're about to merge ... but applies to other 
things, like the neutron plugins
