It was also discussed as part of the reshaper spec and implemented
for future use by a potential fast forward upgrade tool:


I agree, talking to Cinder some more in denver about use of
placement, either over HTTP or direct, whatever form, is good.

But I don't think any of that should impact the naming situation.
It's placement now, and placement is not really any less unique than
a lot of the other words we use, the direct situation is a very
special and edge case (likely in containers anyway, so naming not as
much of a big deal). Changing the name, again, is painful. Please,
let's not do it.
