Absolutely, nova core will still have an awful lot of work todo and will need to have fresh blood. The split will free up some % of existing cores time though as there's certainly plenty of virt driver only patches going through merge that are taking up non negligble review time. eg I've done loads of review on vmware only code which I'd be relieved of with vmware maintainers able to form their own review core for their driver. There is also the fact that people are holding back on even submitting code for many drivers because they know it'll never get reviewed. So the proportion of virt driver only code is likely to be higher than what we currently see on review today.
