Yes, these have definitely outgrown their current home.

RDO already generates the following sub-packages from heat-templates:

Therefore can I suggest we call the new repository "heat-agents"?

I do wonder about the usefulness of the diskimage-builder elements-based
directory layout, since image builders can just install the package. But I
suppose having elements will be useful for heat-agents CI jobs, and a more
appropriate layout doesn't occur to me currently.

Also we should consider if we want to retain the git history of these files
in the new repo - I'm in favour if its not too much effort and the
resulting history looks clean.
