It doesn't seem complicated to me, I'm not sure why the config is weird, 
but maybe just because it's config-driven CLI behavior?

I always think of the pre-upgrade checks as release-specific and we 
could drop the old ones at some point, so that's why I wasn't thinking 
about adding check-specific options to the command - but since we also 
say it's OK to run "nova-status upgrade check" to verify a green 
install, it's probably good to leave the old checks in place, i.e. 
you're likely always going to want those cells v2 and placement checks 
we added in ocata even long after ocata EOL.
