@Melanie: I don't think this is an RC blocker problem:
1) There is a clear workaround, detach the port via the nova API then delete the neutron port.
2) I only heard about one use case when the above direct delete might be used instead of the two step detach + delete. A nova server stuck in a wrong state where port detach cannot be used to free up the SRIOV VF and the admin needs that VF so she goes and deletes the port in neutron using that VF. However I don't think that in this case we need to expect that everything is cleaned up properly. When such stuck Server is finally deleted nova will clean up the resource allocation.
