I didn't receive any feedback indicating that we had any users of plain
when I initially posted to the ML. That said there obviously can be
users out there and my intention isn't to pull support for this format

Ok, after a few emails, of the users I knew about, one is happy with luks
and the others are no longer running openstack. Apologies for the mis-steer
