Actually, I don't agree with this.  I'm fairly sure that a combination of
REST and notifications *could* provide advanced services with the
information they require, so they could be a standalone, and optional,
service with its own API endpoint.  But the issue is that the interface
Neutron has today is clearly not sufficient for the needs of the advanced
services we have, and we would need to add APIs to facilitate that split
when we wanted to take this further.
