Server groups *are* a black box though. You create a server group and
set the policy of the group to "anti-affinity" and that's it. There's no
need for the user or admin to know anything else...

In a cloud, it shouldn't matter which specific compute node an instance
is on -- in fact, in clouds, an instance (workload) may not even know
it's on a hypervisor vs. a baremetal machine vs. a privileged container.
What is important for the user in a cloud to specify is the amount of
resources the workload will consume (this is the flavor in Nova) and a
set of characteristics (traits) that the eventual host system should have.
I think it would help if you describe in a little more detail what is
the eventual outcome you are trying to achieve and what use case that
outcome serves. Then we can assist you in showing you how to get to that
