[openstack-dev] URLs

I'm not sure why you've marked Swift URLs as having their own scheme. It's true that Swift doesn't have the concept of "admin" URLs, but in general if Swift were to assume some URL path prefix, I'm not sure why it wouldn't work (for some definition of work).

Other issues might be the fact that you'd have the extra complexity of a broker layer for all the OpenStack components. iie instead of clients accessing Swift directly and the operator scaling that, the new scheme would require the operator to manage and scale the broker layer and also the Swift layer.

For the record, Swift would need to be updated since it assumes it's the only service running on the domain at that port (Swift does a lot of path parsing).
