This is another great example of a use case in which these blueprints [1, 2] would be handy.  They didn’t make the clip line for Kilo, but we’ll try again for L.  I personally don’t think the scheduler should have “special case” rules about when/when not to apply affinity policies, as that could be confusing for administrators.  It would be simple to just remove it from the group, thereby allowing the administrator to rebuild the VM anywhere s/he wants… and then re-add the VM to the group once the environment is operational once again.
