Completely agree with this sentiment. Is there a crisp distinction between
a "vendor" plugin and an "open source" plugin though?

The Snabb NFV (http://snabb.co/nfv.html) driver superficially looks like a
vendor plugin but is actually completely open source. The development is
driven by end-user organisations who want to make the standard upstream
Neutron support their NFV use cases.

We are looking for a good way to engage with the upstream community. In
this cycle we have found kindred spirits in the NFV subteam., but we did
not find a good way to engage with Neutron upstream (see
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/116476/). It would be wonderful if there
is a suitable process available for us to use in Kilo e.g. incubation.
