It is in fact discoverable through the API since that is what the
"router:external=True" is for. We will update our documentation to be
clearer on this point

  [RFE] No way to differentiate beween floating IP networks and external
  provider networks

Status in neutron:

Bug description:
  We have a bunch of external shared provider networks that users can
  attach a port to and get direct access to the Internet.

  We also have a bunch of floating IP networks that users can use for
  floating IPs.

  The two types of networks are shared and external.

  The issue is that our users can't develop code against our cloud to figure 
out what network to use for floating IPs.

  Luckily for us our provider networks use a different
  provider:network_type to our floating IP networks so they can do:

  search_opts = {'provider:network_type': 'midonet', 'router:external': True}

  But this is not very nice and by no means portable with other
  openstack clouds they use.
