As Melanie Witt mentioned on your bug report, there are a number of issues 
around multi-boot.   (I reported https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1458122 
last year, for example.)

Getting rid of multi-boot has been proposed a number of times but was shot down 
on efficiency arguments.

In order to improve this someone needs to write up a spec to make the whole 
multi-boot story coherent.  At a minimum this would need to address:

1) the quota issue you raised
2) the partial completion issue I raised
3) returning the uuids of all instances booted as a result of the multiboot API call

Since it means a spec, probably nothing will happen in Ocata...we could maybe 
see about Pike.
