I was going to point you here:


But I see you already had commented in that bug.

I had submitted a review request to improve the documentation for Ironic 


As to why the keystone client uses regionOne as a default, the 
conclusion of the above review request essentially indicates Keystone is 
broken in some way.  Note I didn't root cause 1400589 so the conclusion 
of the review 139842 could be incorrect.
