Hi Major,

Liberty is a stable branch and the Mitaka release is just around the
corner. I think it's a bit late in the game to add it. Consider, also, that
deployers can easily consume the role with their own playbook to execute it
if they would like to.

*If* a backport is supported by the consuming community and core team, I
would only support an opt-in model to allow deployers to make use of the
role, but only if they choose to.
