For resources already exists (which not a placeholder resource), still can
be deleted through the client. Any newly created resources will be
considered as placeholder resources like none resource. We will schedule to
delete it from heat resources list.

For users that really need this kind of feature, can also consider using
auto-healing like the sample template in [2]. Which IMO is way better than
