It's required for Rackspace images. It's not necessarily required for others. You'll need it if you need to configure the VM with a specific IP address and you're not doing DHCP. It'll be required if you want to offer the ability to set root password, etc, as well.

At the same time, some sort of agent will be a requirement for configuring a guest in a non-DHCP based environment. And as you mention, we'll need to keep everything in sync, so it feels like it should be a part of nova. :-/
