Identity entity ID management for domain-specific backends
==========================================================
Keystone supports the option of having domain-specific backends for the
identity driver (i.e. for user and group storage), allowing, for example,
a different LDAP server for each domain. To ensure that Keystone can determine
to which backend it should route an API call, starting with Juno, the
identity manager will, provided that domain-specific backends are enabled,
build on-the-fly a persistent mapping table between Keystone Public IDs that
are presented to the controller and the domain that holds the entity, along
with whatever local ID is understood by the driver. This hides, for instance,
the LDAP specifics of whatever ID is being used.
