"Fetch these bare metal statistics" doesn't seem too off-course for
Ironic to me. The alternative is that Ceilometer and Ironic would both
have to be configured for the same pluggable credential store.

There is already a blueprint with a proposed patch here for Ironic to do the querying: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ironic/+spec/send-data-to-ceilometer.

I think, for terms of credential storage (and, for that matter, metrics gathering as I noted in that blueprint), it's very useful to have things pluggable. Ironic, in particular, has many different use cases: bare metal private cloud, bare metal public cloud, and triple-o. I could easily see all three being different enough to call for different forms of credential storage.
