Can a non admin update quotas? Quota updates are rare. Performance of them can take the hit.

This is something that has come up in Neutron discussions before. There are two issues here:
1. Performance: it will require a round-trip to Keystone on every request.
2. If the Neutron keystone user in unprivileged and the request context is unprivileged, we might not actually be allowed to tell if the tenant exists.
The first we can deal with, but the second is going to be an issue that we might not be able to get around.
How about as a temporary solution, we just confirm that the input is a UUID so names don't get used?

[nova,cinder,neutron] will allow you to do a quota-update using the tenant-name (instead of tenant-id). They will also allow you to do a quota-show tenant-name and get the expected values back.
Then you go to the tenant and end up surprised that the quotas have not been applied and you can still do things you were not supposed to.
It turns out that [nova,cinder,neutron] just created an entry on the quota table, inserting the tenant-name on the tenant-id field.
Ops lessons learned: use the tenant-id!
Dev lessons learned: we need to validate better our inputs and refuse to update a tenant-id that does not exist.
I have documented this behaviour on https://bugs.launchpad.net/neutron/+bug/1399065 and https://bugs.launchpad.net/neutron/+bug/1317515. I can reproduce it in IceHouse.
Could someone please confirm if this is still the case on master? If not, which version of OpenStack addressed that?
