I'm not sure you actually can. What billing integration we have is service offering based.
You can create as many as you want and you price them individually. I think cloud usage stores
how long a service offering was used and you bill based on that.
Of course there are other aspects to usage like network traffic in/out and snapshot etc but
the CPU/RAM based billing comes from the service offerings.
Also the way I see things if we "lock down" clients to specific offerings we can plan ahead
what/how much resources you might need to fulfil their requirements.

How would you meter and bill adhoc instance types created by customers?

Just curious.
