That is a one-way gate.  I would be surprised to see a deployment revert
from using Ceph rather than Swift in order to meet that, after all there
was a valid-to-the-deployer reason to not use Swift in the first place.  An
upstream requirements change doesn't change that.

That said, I do agree that the OpenStack API compatibility is important now
and shouldn't wait for the long-term ideal.  But I have no expectation that
adding things like the code requirements down the road will change the
existing deployments.
