[openstack-dev] [Heat][Keystone] Native keystone resources in Heat

I got a question today about creating keystone users/roles/tenants in 
Heat templates. We currently support creating users via the 
AWS::IAM::User resource, but we don't have a native equivalent.

IIUC keystone now allows you to add users to a domain that is otherwise 
backed by a read-only backend (i.e. LDAP). If this means that it's now 
possible to configure a cloud so that one need not be an admin to create 
users then I think it would be a really useful thing to expose in Heat. 
Does anyone know if that's the case?

I think roles and tenants are likely to remain admin-only, but we have 
precedent for including resources like that in /contrib... this seems 
like it would be comparably useful.
