[openstack-dev] [nova][neutron] Is it still valid/supported to create a network with a br-<uuid> id?

The nova create-server API allows passing a network id that's prefixed 
with br-<uuid> [1]. That was added due to this bug from Folsom [2].

I'm wondering if that's still valid? Looking at the network.id data 
model in Neutron it doesn't look like it would be [3].

I'm trying to sort this out for the get me a network spec in nova [4] 
because as part of the jsonschema validation change for that 
microversion, I was going to require that network ID be a uuid, or the 
special 'auto' or 'none' values. Supporting br-<uuid> type IDs would 
mess that up.
