If you'll forgive the sarcasm, it sounds like you're proposing that
OpenStack components should be able to rely on the existence of a
standard service suitable for generalized storage and retrieval of
arbitrary blobs of data through an API. Our trademark
interoperability requirements may even guarantee the presence of one
already in any compliant deployment; I'll have to check... ;)
