We should revisit this ^ issue at some point because honestly if people
can't spend the time and energy to reach consensus, we're screwed and
we're going to continue to look like a giant enterprisey boondoggle
rather than a legitimate and useful "Ubiquitous Open Source Cloud

But fine:

1. service type as described in option 2
2. managed by the api-wg with appeal to the TC
3. be limited to those services that (wish to/need to/should) be present
    in the service catalog

As discussed elsewhere 3 is a feature not a bug. We should endeavor
to keep the service catalog clean, tidy, and limited as a control on
OpenStack itself is clean, tidy and limited.
