So I think in practice the reverse has occurred and the core has got
smaller. I think that's perhaps the nature of attempting to get
consensus - its far easier to get agreement that something should be
optional than get agreement that everyone should support it.

I believe that we really need a debate around this because as others
have mentioned it directly impacts interoperability between openstack
deployments for users. But we should keep this debate separate from the
v2/v3 one :-)
