This approval process & admin action is the exact opposite to what
cloud is all about. I'd suggest that anybody using such a process has
little understanding of cloud and should be educated, not weird
interfaces added to nova to support a broken premise. The cloud /is
different/ from traditional IT, that is its strength, and we should be
wary of undermining that to allow old-style thinking to continue.
