Create a server without network?

From http://developer.openstack.org/api-ref-compute-v2.html it looks like it's not actually possible to create a server without any network. If the network parameter is omitted, nova will try to create a server with all isolated networks. Do I interpret this correctly? I'd like to create a server for testing purposes without a network attached. Is this possible?

[edit2] Clarification: my issue is that nova will try to provision with all isolated networks, and for this it will also consider shared networks -- even if it doesn't actually have permission to create an interface there. (If no networks are found, also not shared ones, it will indeed not provision any interfaces)
