JC --

My apologies for arriving late to this party :)  I wrote the DNS code 
that's currently in Nova, and I have a long-neglected item on my todo 
list that reads 'Move floating-ip-dns into quantum'.

I'll be sure to show up at the session you've scheduled for San Diego.  
If manpower is an issue, I'm happy to contribute to/do all of the coding 
for this.  I should be able to start on it more or less immediately 
after the conference.

I am aware of the nova-dns service developed by Grid Dynamics, and the current Nova implementation, and they would be a good base.

This would also allow for opening the door for a more generic purpose DNS as a Service capability, where tenants may even manage DNS resources that are not in the realm hosted and managed by openstack.
