Steve, you're right, but why not drive placement from top-down? When you configure a deployment with multiple servers, why wouldn't it be better to be able to configure placement directives and pass those down through the cloud API? I sometimes want two machines next to each other for performance, but at other times want two machines "far apart" for failure resiliency. Shouldn't that be specified explicitly top-down?
