[openstack-dev] [nova] Removing BDM devices from POST requests

I know we've talked about this over and over and another bug 
reminded me of it. We have long talked about removing the ability to
specify a block device name when creating a server or attaching a volume
because we can't honor the requested device name anyway and trying to do
so just causes issues. That's part of the reason why the libvirt driver
stopped honoring the block device name in requests back in Liberty .
I think we all agree on removing the device name from the API, but I'm
having a hard time remembering if someone signed up to write a spec for
this. I could have sworn this came up recently and someone said they'd
write a spec, but I can't remember.
So this is my attempt at remembering and if it's all a dream, then is
anyone interested in owning this? If not, I'll start writing the spec
