After some of the confusion around endpoints in devstack, we decided to
simplify the endpoints registered in devstack to only the ones needed
for development. Basically only register "public" interfaces unless
there is something special about the service.

https://review.openstack.org/#/c/433272/ is the change.

Matt Riedemann pointed out that this would break Cinder because there is
a hardcoded concept of nova_catalog_admin_info -

Except... it didn't (see results on

What is more confusing, is the oslo.config dump at the beginning of
cinder service starts there don't have any reference to any of these
nova_ config variables.

How is this code loaded and used? Is there no testing of cinder -> nova
happening in the gate? Is this missing testing, or are there reasons
these configurations would never load that code?
