So to be clear, you're suggesting that if someone asks for an
instance name which can't be converted to a (legal) hostname, then
the nova boot call be rejected outright, even though there are
likely plenty of people who 1. (manually) align their instance names
with FQDNs, and 2. don't use the hostname metadata anyway?
