That's an excellent point, and one which scares me quite a lot.  But that's
the sad reason we need two lots of API servers - so even if someone were to
get hold of an admin userid/password, they still can't go deleting the
entire cloud.  It does at least limit the damage.

Keystone is indeed the only one that does this - I hesitate to say "right"
because it might not be.

I'm not sure I follow when you say separate service - you mean a completely
different service, with a full set of endpoints?  Makes sense if the
projects that use the catalogue also honour that, but I don't know I see
the difference between having a different service for admin requests, and a
split admin url and public url.  Maybe I'm just being thick here, but I had
thought that was the original intention despite it never being used by
anyone other than Keystone.
