[Openstack-operators] PCI pass through settings on a flavor without aliases on the API nodes

Does anyone know if it is possible to set PCI pass through on a flavor without also needing to set the alias on the nova API nodes as mentioned here:

E.G you need to set in nova.conf:
alias = { "vendor_id":"8086", "product_id":"154d ", "device_type":"type-PF", "name":"a1" }

Then you can set the flavor:
openstack flavor set m1.large --property "pci_passthrough:alias"="a1:2"

E.g. I would be fine with just setting the PCI vendor/product on the flavor instead of also needing to set this at the api node
So something like:
openstack flavor set m1.large –property “pci_passthrough:vendor”=”8086”  “pci_passthrough:device”=”154d:1”
