Please, take a look and let's discuss it if it makes sense.
Am I correct in thinking that, if the attacker is able to modify $PATH in the environment under which nova etc runs, you've already lost?
I would argue this is at worst a packaging bug, assuming packagers are not explicitly defining the $PATH variable as part of the init scripts.
P.S. the openstack-dev mailing list is generally where blueprint discussion happens :)
