In the existing novaclient code for show/rebuild, the --minimal option just 
skips doing the lookups on the flavor/image as described in the help text.  It 
doesn't affect the other ~40 fields in the instance.  After the new microversion 
we already have the flavor details without doing the flavor lookup so I thought 
it made sense to display them.

I suppose an argument could be made that for consistency we should keep the 
output with --minimal similar to what it was before.  If we want to go that 
route I'm happy to do so.
