I also support having the config-drive always available, as I don't see
the use case of changing the VM IP address against the will of the
cluster admin.

I asked on the debian-cloud mailing, and most setups expect the
cloud-init config to be always available on boot.

@alexandre: thanks for putting this forward ! Out of band IP
configuration is a really a nice plus for provisionning.
