Irrespective of opinions as to if API extensions are good or not, the
fact of the matter is we support them in neutron today and as a result
we have users that rely on them as well as the ability to interface
(CLI) with such extensions via python-neutronclient. That said, I think
this concern has been heard [1] and we will work to address it
short-to-mid term.

As to neutron's longer-term goals W/R/T API extensions; I can't speak to
