i have not done that personally but i have heard of others doing it in the past.
when we add optional api service to openstack in the big tent they do not need to modify keystone
to add there endpoint so you should be able to regeister external api endpoint
and use it as your cataloge if i under stand how this works correctly.

it would be good to get someone who works on keystone to respond but you shoudl be able to do this.
