Thanks Sandy! And thanks Eddie for putting together the strawman!

Some important things that I see are missing, so far... please let me 
know what your thoughts are regarding these.

1) There needs to be some method of listing the notification "codes". By 
"code", I mean "compute.instance_create.start", or possibly the CADF 
event codes, which I believe I recommended way back a-when the original 
ML thread started.

2) Each notification message payload must contain a version in it. We 
need some ability to evolve the notification schemas over time, and a 
version in the payload is a pre-requisite for that.

All the best,
