One approach would be to switch the underlying Heat AutoScalingGroup
implementation to use Senlin and then deprecate the AutoScalingGroup
resource type in favor of the Senlin resource type over several
cycles. Not saying that this is the definitive solution, but it is
worth discussing as an option since this follows a path other projects
have taken (e.g. nova-volume extraction into cinder).
A prerequisite to this approach would probably require Heat to create
the so-called common library to house the autoscaling code. Then
Senlin would need to achieve feature parity against this autoscaling
library before the switch could happen.

+1. The outcome of any discussion will be beneficial not only to the
teams but also the operators and users.
