It's not making anything worse and is a good stop-gap, but yeah those
list is a bit too distant from the schema definition.

How about a get_vm_user_cloudinit_options helper located directly
below the format definition, filtering out those keys that do not
make sense, or are off limits, and use that?

Maybe with some wider clean-up for the others? But this is also a
bit thankless work and would definitively need some test harness
to ensure no regression gets in.
