It's pretty simple. MOM does something valuable today that VDSM doesn't do. An integrated MOM inside of VDSM doesn't exist. If VDSM wants to incorporate MOM that's great. But how is the existence of VDSM an argument against contributing MOM source code to the oVirt community? Am I missing something?

On a related point, there are good examples that argue for consolidating function inside a single daemon, and there are good counterexamples. It's not always true that every node policy function should be integrated within a single daemon. It probably makes sense in this case. But again, VDSM doesn't do what MOM does today, which is another argument in favor of contributing MOM and letting the community work with it.
