-1 We already have a REST gateway for this purpose.  Why don't you propose extending that
for your needs. 

Edit: More detailed explanation: You are proposing what sounds like a HDFS HTTPFS-like approach
for rearchitecting the HBase REST interface. In general I'm sympathetic to this idea but for
the administrative use cases you have presented, none require such invasive change. If you
do want to pursue this approach, it would be helpful to attach a design document that successfully
argues why the current REST gateway or an adaptation thereof cannot suffice. Also, if rearchitecting
REST in this way, it's not sufficient to only handle administrative tasks. We should not have
more than one framework for interacting with HBase RESTfully, it would be a maintenance burden
and confusing.

> For enabling HBASE-4368, it may be useful to have embedded REST API server for each region
server, and HBase Master can either aggregate or proxy/redirect REST API base on administrative
task functions.
> The popular admin task that can take advantage of this setup are:
> - Trigger table compaction
> - Show process list
> - Health check
> - Show black listed servers
