    >> I'm not sure what you mean by Role refers RolePermissions, as of now each role
has a list of role permissions linked to it if that's what you're asking.
    With the containment approach, if there is a need to add a permission to allow say deployVM
API on every role then you need to create a permission for every such role. This will lead
to data duplication. Instead if the permission is created only once and then mapped to all
the roles that needs it duplication won't happen. This is what I meant as reference relationship.
Check the cloudstack DB with table name ending in map t o get an idea. This will also mean
changing the APIs to reflect the same.
