Hi Joe,

Tools like Pumphouse [1] (migrates workloads, e.g. instances, between
two OpenStack clouds) would benefit from supporting this (Pumphouse
would be able to replicate user instances in a new cloud up to their
UUIDs).

Are there any known gotchas with support of this feature in REST APIs
(in general)?

Thanks,
Roman
