There are a few things:

1) The blueprint should've been approved and targeted for K-3 after the spec
   was merged, but that never happened.
2) This shouldn't have been -2 on March 6th, it still had until March 10th
   technically since the blueprint should've been approved.
3) There were disageements on snapshots having mutable metadata as discussed in
   a Cinder meeting [1]. I agree with Duncan on how this can break billing
   properties. I also mentioned in the meeting that I would not merge this
   until that was addressed.

Regardless, we're way too late for K now. Apologies on this not been targeted,
but feel free to let me know in the future if I miss something of yours that
should be targeted so it's prioritized.
