Specifically, users can opt to manage their deployment by specifying a custom docker image. OpenShift will provision a pod using that custom image that performs the actual deployment and can deal with these scenarios.

Re: "provisioning" external endpoint
Post 3.0, or as an integration. I think it's valuable, and when we design core interfaces they should support this mechanism on top of rock solid fundamentals. The bulk of this work has to happen in Kube first then we can come back and add the provisioning story.
However, pending that, it should be possible to use our APIs to accomplish the same goal.
