Provide better user-facing mechanism to choose service capabilities

Registered by Eugene Nikanorov on 2014-02-03

Neutron currently provides simple way for a user to request specific capabilities of the service. That is done by allowing to specify provider for created service.
We need to improve this way by exposing capabilities rather than exposing vendor/provider/driver

Whiteboard

Dec-07-2015(armax): fixes and further code went in the Mitaka timeframe, so this is better targeting Mitaka than Liberty.

March-17 (mestery): Out of Kilo.

December-15 (mestery): Kilo-3.

Nice idea. I think we actually need the same things for networks, in fact. See the capabilities proposal from ages ago - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1gjZXBsNdscaBbVk1OxwcbXLI6f3igIQwlOPL1yr6UZI/edit#heading=h.teexnsjz1sy1 - for one way in which the constraints could be specified - I'm not sure this is generally applicable to every constraint case but it would be kind of nice if we used a similar pattern throughout.
