We do have https://bugs.launchpad.net/heat/+bug/1326483 for the missing
man page.

For the doc bug, the heat installation instructions need to describe
when and how to run heat-keystone-setup-domain[1]

Having said all that, if the heat domain is not configured there is
fallback code which reverts to the Havana behaviour of requiring the
