For example: will be unnecessary to have in a nova-node (compute+network) running the nova-api together or installed. Separating, we could have a more secure environment for large deploys like Data Centers. The package could contemplate meta-packages to full nova install and node-install, for example.
You can install the package on each server but
only enable each service where required.
The main advantage of sub packages is to
separate logic and to minimize dependencies,
neither of which is significant I think
when splitting the nova package.
