I think it is slightly different.  Basically this mimics the ec2 style
user-data where the data can be grabbed via http from some part of the
cloud engine.  See eg:

http://docs.amazonwebservices.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/AESDG-chapter-instancedata.html

Since this is how cloud-init uses the data, this is how we will want to
consume it.  I suspect we will have to look into this more with other
cloud providers but for now it seems to me it should be added.
