I suspect whether cell itself could ease large scale deployment across multiple DC. Although openstack is modularized as separated projects, but top level total solution across projects is needed when considering issues such as scaling, especially coordination between nova and network / metering.
Personally +1 to Steve, that in terms of future plans decision for scaling, we should explore all similar proposals such as Cascading and Federation. In fact networking and metering face the same challenge as nova, or even more with l2pop and dvr. Those two proposals both bring total solution across projects besides nova, with each has its own emphasis by the view of intra vs. inter admin domain.
