Okay, agreed.  Nothing in in the storage UI.

My thinking with making it required was:

(1) It makes it pretty obvious where the hostname entry is.

(2) This forces the initial network spoke to pop up, therefore the user
has a chance to provide us with a hostname before they can start making
LVs that will need that information.

Thinking a little more about it, (1) doesn't matter.  If the user wants
to give us a hostname, they are almost certainly going to look in the
network spoke.  I do not know what to do about (2), though.  The risk
here is that the user first goes into storage, we make VGs and LVs
without a hostname, then the user goes into networking and provides us
with a hostname.

Perhaps we can somehow go back in and fill in the VG/LV names once a
hostname has been provided to us?
