You could also use custom traits.

I'm not sure whether this helps, but it's easy to detect the allocation
ratio of a compute node's VCPU resource via placement with GET
/resource_providers/$cn_uuid/inventories/VCPU [1].

But breaking down a VCPU quota into different "classes" of VCPU
sounds... impossible to me.

But since you said

...perhaps it would help you to use PCPUs instead of VCPUs for these. We
started reporting PCPUs in Train [2].
