In general, a host with less running services is easier to troubleshoot.
However, there is no fundamental issue with sharing mysql/rabbit on a single controller assuming the host is quick enough.

For the OpenStack API services I would highly recommend “splitting” things up.
It does not necessarily need to be on different physical hosts but at least use something to prevent package dependencies between the different OpenStack components (virtualenv/containers/vms).
If you do not do this it makes upgrades of an individual component on a node near impossible.
