[keycloak-dev] Remove realm json at "/auth/realms/<realm name>"

The idea of that URL is to expose public information about the realm, 
i.e. public cert/key and public endpoint urls.  If this information is 
not being used and we have other mechanisms in place, then yeah, remove it.

IMO, the jira you reference is unrelated.  Its about shutting down the 
admin console/API.  As far as that goes, it would be cool to split up 
keycloak into separate subsystems:

* backend (required)
* admin api/console
* account service
* authentication/brokering/token endpoints

Even have the admin api/console be exposed from a different bind
