Great discussion here. Thanks all!

It seems like folks support #2 and Thierry's #4 the most.
I think #2 is the best effort:value option, and have proposed a resolution
to that effect: https://review.openstack.org/645601

OpenDev is planning for an April 19 migration, so we should get this
done relatively quickly.
