I agree, and apologize both to Alexis and the broader team for 
side-tracking this thread, that wasn't my intent.

I was just curious as to the overall oslo-core vs project-specific core 
teams, and trust that oslo-core doesn't overstep their bounds and 
approve changes they aren't sure about, much like nova cores shouldn't 
approve areas of a very large code base where none of us are experts.

Anyway, let's move on - and sorry again for diverting this.
