Well, the guidelines are just that: guidelines.  They don't implicitly
propose changes to any OpenStack projects, just provide guidance for
future API changes.  Thus, I think they should go in a repo separate
from any of our *-specs repos; to me, a spec provides documentation of a
change, and is thus independent of the guidelines.
