You should be able to set up a quantum provider network that has routed (non-NAT) external connectivity (i.e. via a physical router), and create a quantum subnet on that network with a pool of IPs that quantum's DHCP service will allocate to ports. You would deploy quantum-dhcp-agent for this network, but not deploy quantum-l3-agent, and VMs using this network would have direct external connectivity. This approach basically eliminates the private network, putting the VMs right on the public network.

It sounds like you'd like to use the quantum-l3-agent, but with NAT turned off for the external network. I'm not sure if this is possible right now, but the above suggestion might work for you if you don't need the quantum-l3-agent for other purposes.
