Is there a configuration where if the user shuts down an instance in their project, the CPU and RAM resources would be freed up in their project allowing them to create other VMs with these resources? If they tried to start the original machine back up and they were under the limit the VM wouldn't start.

The nova shelve command will free up the physical resources that have been allocated by shutting down and snapshotting the instance, but doesn't appear to allow tenants to workaround quota limitations.
