Configure controller node as docker container

I just got a new server with more memory and CPU and I'm planning to re-create my whole openstack (Icehouse) setup from scratch on it. Currently I'm running the compute node on a laptop with Ubuntu 14.04 and the controller and network nodes are running as ubuntu VMs in Virtualbox on my iMac.

I'm installing the compute node directly on the new server (Ubuntu with KVM) however in order to maximize the resources available to the controller node, I'm planning to run it on a docker container side by side with the compute node. The network node will run on a KVM VM off the compute node.

Is it a recommended and supported setup? Does anyone know of any guides to accomplish that? I haven't found anything about it.
