Which is usually a problem because of the APIs, not Ceilometer. They're
sometimes utterly slow for simple things and other times don't offer a
way to retrieve what Ceilometer needs in a batch-y way.

Yes, but for the wrong reasons. Having a component sending a batch of
notification every hour without any configuration knob and granularity
choice is a PITA for the users. Plus it ususally comes from a single
point (of failure?).
Ceilometer would do a better job than $project at getting this info, if
said project(s) would offer a proper and performant API to retrieve them
