We had considered having a standalone REST service, but the Advance Services need a level of integration with Neutron that is more than REST and RPC can provide.  So the initial plan is to have the operator configure the Neutron REST service to load the appropriate Advance Service controller modules.  This would enable the operators to continue to deploy a single endpoint and preserve existing user tools.

The integration interface would be formalized as part of the current refactoring work being completed during the Kilo cycle.
