Depends on what you mean by detach. If the compute is down while 
deleting the server, the API will still call the (internal to nova) 
network API code [1] to either (a) unbind ports that nova didn't create 
or (2) delete ports that nova did create.

For the policy change where the port has to be unbound to delete it, 
we'd already have support for that, it's just an extra step.

At the PTG I was groaning a bit about needing to add another step to 
delete a port from the nova side, but thinking about it more we have to 
do the exact same thing with cinder volumes (we have to detach them 
before deleting them), so I guess it's not the worst thing ever.
