This is a question purely out of curiousity. Why is Neutron averse to
the concept of using tenants as natural ways of dividing up the cloud --
which at its core means "multi-tenant", on-demand computing and networking?
Is this just due to a lack of traditional use of the term in networking
literature? Or is this something more deep-grained (architecturally)
