So "Value for my-ip" *must* be inside a private IPv4 range?  And we're
also taking it for granted that it needs to be a unique value on the
same LAN as its neighbours!  So how about something like this:

  Template: nova/my-ip
  Type: string
  _Description: Node IP address:
   Please enter the IP address for this node on the private network
   being used locally by OpenStack.
   This value will be stored in the my_ip directive of nova.conf.
