  [RFE] Neutron API enhancement - make network and subnets as optional

Status in neutron:

Bug description:
  Lets enhance Neutron API to make it flexible so that newer networking
  use cases can be accommodated.

  More specifically, remove the inter-dependency of network, subnets,
  and ports upon each other. One should be allowed to create any of
  these resources independently without forced to create higher
  precedence resource. For example, one has to create a network first in
  order to create a port (neutron port-create). This forces the back-
  ends/plugins/drivers to create dummy networks in many instance to be
  able to create ports. This creates a scale issue.

  If we removed these inter-dependencies by making these resources as
  optional attributes, one should be able to create a port first, and
  then, depending upon the applications behavior, be able to attach this
  port to a network. By making these as optional attributes, we keep the
  API backward compatible while making it flexible for newer use cases.
