The challenge is that some properties are docker-specific and other
container engines will have their own specific properties.
We decided to go with a tag for each supported engine -- so if we add
support for rkt, we'll add a <rkt> tag with whatever properties it
needs. Then a <bundle> would need to contain either a <docker> tag or a
We did consider a generic alternative like:
<nvpair id="docker-meta-1" name="image" value="pcmk:httpd"/>
But it was decided that using engine-specific tags would allow for
schema enforcement, and would be more readable.
The <network> and <storage> tags were kept under <bundle> because we
figured those are essential to the concept of a bundle, and any engine
should support some way of mapping those.
