This is part of the cloud-engine / orchestration layer refactoring started in 4.1. The final
idea is to separate out the cloudstack API layer and  the orchestration logic into different
services. Each service will have its own set of VO's as per the view the service works with.
Thus the VO will populate/retrieve only those fields that are visible/essential for that service
functionality. Hence you see some difference in the two VO's you mention.
The VM deployment API layer works with VMInstanceVO ; while the orchestration flow works with

There are many other entities for which this has been done so far, Alex has put everything
under cloud-engine-schema recently where you can find some more of such examples.
