-1 , I'm against this. Cloud-init and Openstack Havana seem (untested) 
to support setting an admin password as well in addition to the SSH key 
and I'd rather be able to use this feature.
If the images are for Openstack then they should be so all the way.
As such the SSH root login should be enabled and the root password 
should be randomly generated and unknown.

If anyone really wants to change the password to something known to 
them libguestfs can be used (e.g. virt-edit) or just boot into single 
user mode, though this should not be necessary as cloud-init should set 
the provided admin password.
