What you are proposing here sounds reasonable especially if the
abstractions we have today are a good fit to help configure the virtual

Just note that we typically run os-net-config locally on each node to
configure interfaces, bridges, and bonds locally. So long as this works
for all the virtual switch configuration too then os-net-config might
be a good place to implement this functionality.

Here are some examples of how we drive os-net-config with Heat today:
