The short explanation which clicked for me (granted it's probably an
oversimplification, but still) was this: Ironic provides an admin
API for managing bare metal resources, while Mogan gives you a user
API (suitable for public cloud use cases) to your Ironic backend. I
suppose it could have been implemented in Ironic, but implementing
it separately allows Ironic to be agnostic to multiple user
frontends and also frees the Ironic team up from having to take on
yet more work directly.
