Hi Vinay,

I left a few comments on the specification document.
While I understand this is functional for the VPC use case, there might be
applications also outside of the VPC.
My only concern is that, at least in the examples in the document, this
appear to be violating a bit the tenet of neutron being
I am however confident that it should be doable to find a way to work
around it, or have a discussion identifying the cases where instead it's
advisable to expose the underlying technology.

>From a general perspective, I have not been following closely the
discussion on VPC; I hope to find time to catch up.
However, I recall seeing a blueprint for using nova-api as endpoint for
network operations as well; is that still the current direction>
