The console access bit Joanna mentioned is special in that it needs to be
able to reach things like IPMI controllers. So that's not going to really
be able to run on a service VM easily. It's totally doable (I think we
could have achieved it with VTEP switches and OVN when I was playing
with that), but I can understand why a container solution running on
the same host as the conductor might be more desirable than service VMs.
