I'd be OK with caching/performance improvements in subsequent changes. 
Docs on this are going to be important to land, so they could be 
separate but if this is going to get into Newton I'd want the docs to be 
in Newton also.

I don't think Tempest tests anything from the metadata API service. We 
only have that running in a handful of jobs (the postgres job is the 
main one). We could probably write a test though that ssh's into a guest 
and then pulls the data from the metadata service. I'm not sure what 
you'd populate into the dynamic vendor data endpoint though, maybe just 
test data in devstack?

I think we should have functional tests in the Nova tree for this at 
least - how feasible would that be? In other words, would we have to 
stub out stuff to the point that it would be a useless test in nova's 
functional test tree?
