I agree something is needed. In addition to the items above, it's much
of the post deployment steps from devtest_overcloud.sh. I'd like to see that be
consumable from the UI and CLI.

I think we should be aware though that where it makes sense to add things
to os-cloud-config directly, we should just do that.

I agree with Dougal here, -1 on this.

I'm more or less happy with any of those.

However, If we wanted something to match the os-*-config pattern we might
could go with:
- os-management-config
- os-deployment-config
