We need to be careful. I believe that a user can use these filters to keep requesting VMs in the case of nova to get to the size of your cloud.
Also given that nova now has ServerGroups let's not make a quick decision on using something that is being replaced with something better. I suggest we investigated ServerGroups a little more before we discard it. The operator should really decide how he/she wants Anti-affinity by setting the right filters in nova.
