### DVR - No need for SNAT so can Network node be removed?

I have a few installs of Openstack Juno on the go. I have recently configured Juno with Distributed Virtual routing - which is working great. I have a Controller, Network node and two Compute hosts to start with.

I do not require the use of SNAT therefore the Network nodes' only real purpose is DHCP. I'm wondering if it is possible to configure DHCP/Metadata on the Controller and shut the Network node down. If so, what else will I need to do on the Controller to allow for this?
