Problem was described at https://ask.openstack.org/en/question/82224/is-it-possible-to-create-instance-with-multiple-ssh-keys/
Looks like OpenStack (nova) allows to specify only one SSH key when instance is created. I believe array of strings should be supported instead of single string only, as authorized_keys allows for more than one SSH key. Workarounds like using merged key are not always an option, as it scales poorly (see example in question linked above).

Wishlist/enhancement request of course.

We don't track RFEs through launchpad bugs. If you'd like to submit a blueprint and spec to the nova-specs repo then we could review the idea there, if even a limited backlog spec where you don't necessarily need design/implementation details, just the high level problem statement and use cases.
