There's never any need to ask permission to contribute to a project :) 
If nova-docker driver is something you cannot do without, feel free to 
contribute to it.

That said, Magnum does seem to be where most of the docker-related 
contributions to the compute landscape have moved. So, it's more likely 
you will find company in that project and perhaps be able to make more 
effective contributions there. Can I ask what is the "extra 
virtualization layer" that you are referring to in Magnum?
