Even if the BGP speaker is running right on the host, the shared storage or 
backups thing doesn't click for me.  What about your BGP speaker will need 
persistent storage?  At least in our environment, everything unique about 
the BGP speaker is config injected at startup or can be derived at startup.  
This might be based on differences in how we're using them (BGP daemon per 
container host in our case, rather than "I need X number of BGP speakers; 
schedule them somewhere"), I guess.
