I commented on the review, but I think it's easier to discuss this here...

Beyond changing the release model, what you're proposing here is to 
remove functionality from an existing deliverable ("neutron" which was a 
combination of openstack/neutron and openstack/neutron-*aas, released 
together) and making the *aas things separate deliverables.

 From a Defcore perspective, the trademark programs include the 
"neutron" deliverable. So the net effect for DefCore is that you remove 
functionality -- and removing functionality from a Defcore-used project 
needs extra care and heads-up time.

It's probably fine to remove *-aas from the neutron deliverable if there 
is no Defcore capability or designated section there (current or 
planned). Otherwise we need to have a longer conversation that is likely 
to extend beyond the release model deadline tomorrow.
