Sounds good to me. The problem could be advertising these realms, because
we will need issue extra calls to backend to fetch VPC stuff and append
it to realms list.

Same for instances, to attach a 'realm' to instance we would need to query
VPC, that can slow down instances listing.

These two are the only drawbacks I can think of. They can be eventually resolved
by tweaking 'aws' gem to get more informations about instances.

No objections, if we can re-use this schema for FGCP driver or some other
drivers (VSphere ?) that would be fantastic.
