I know very little about OSC and it's syntax, but what I would do in
this case is to follow the same syntax as the command that changes the
power state of the nodes. Apparently the power state command proposed
[1] follows the syntax:

$ openstack baremetal power --on | --off <UUID>

I would expect provision state to follow the same, perhaps

$ openstack baremetal provision --provide | --active | ... <UUID>

So my vote goes to make both power and provision state syntax
consistent. (Which currently is the option # 2, but none patches are
merged yet)
