If I parse this correctly - you're asking about making dib-core a
superset of tripleo-core. I actually hadn't considered this, and I think
it's a good idea. The only reason way may not want this is if tripleo is
drifting far enough away from DIB that it doesnt make sense for new
tripleo cores to become DIB cores, but I don't think that is the case.

So, +1 on that idea.
