Configure br_storage on infrastructure nodes?

From the configure target hosts documentation, I am trying to determine whether or not to configure a br_storage bridge on the infrastructure hosts.

This page would seem to indicate "no", by omission. This page, however, has a comment that reads:

# Storage bridge (optional)
#
# Only the COMPUTE and STORAGE nodes must have an IP address
# on this bridge. When used by infrastructure nodes, the
# IP addresses are assigned to containers which use this
# bridge.
#

It sounds pretty necessary according to this second page, so I'll put it in w/no static IP for the host. But it seems like the first page (with the table) is missing a line which would tell you to configure the bridge on infrastructure hosts? Should these be made consistent or are there reasons to not configure br_storage on infrastructure hosts?
