Just out of curiosity but is this due to o.vo not merging reviews fast 
enough? Not releasing fast enough? A desire to experiment/prove out the 
additions in nova before moving to o.vo? Or something else?

 From my point of view it feels odd to have a upstream (o.vo) and a 
downstream (nova) where the downstream in a way carries 'patches' on-top 
of o.vo when both o.vo and nova are in the same ecosystem (openstack).
