[openstack-dev] [manila] Relation of share types and share protocols

We’re preparing the use of Manila in production and noticed that there seems to be no strong connection
between share types and share protocols.

I would think that not all backends will support all protocols. If that’s true, wouldn’t it be sensible to establish
a stronger relation and have supported protocols defined per type, for instance as extra_specs (which, as one
example, could then be used by the Manila UI to limit the choice to supported protocols for a given share
type, rather than maintaining two independent and hard-coded tuples)?
