Sorry for late.

I introduced 'networking' for the api ref url.
It is just because the official API name is the networking API
and the project name of neutron is OpenStack Networking.

I am not sure which is better 'network' and 'networking' for these cases,
but I agree it is confusing to use both keywords for neutron.
I don't have a strong opinion on the choice,
but if I must choose either, 'network' looks simpler to me.

It would be nice if we have an agreement on what term should be used
for all service-type, URL and others (if any).
