i use https://developer.openstack.org/api-ref/compute/ almost daily so unless
we host the api ref somwhere else and put redirect in place i would hope we
can keep this inplace.
if we move it under docs like the config stuff 
or somewhere else that is fine but i fine it very useful to be able
to link the rendered api docs to people on irc that ask questions.

i can obviosly point peple to github
but unlike the configs the api ref is much less readable with out rendering
it with sphinx
