So, we could do that, we already have the quota_classes table and the 
os-quota-class-sets REST API, and as mentioned the only usable thing 
that goes in there is overriding global default quota.

Would you suggest we drop the global quota limit configuration options 
and simply populate the quota_classes table with a 'default' quota class 
and the limits from the config in a DB migration, then drop the config
