IMO we need the console to properly support standalone mode.

Theoretically any server could host the console. The console is a client 
to the admin interface exposed by the DomainController, the 
HostController(s) and any ServerController(s).

I expect a typical scenario is users will want a separate server to host 
the console; i.e. separate from the regular servers that handle user 
requests. Since servers all belong to a server group, that implies a 
separate server group running a profile sufficient to support the 
console webapp. The configuration utilities we provide to help users set 
up their configs need to make it easy to create such a configuration.

There is no committed requirement to support maintaining a 1 hour 
history of metrics. IMO if we want to support this, it should be a JON 
feature, with JON responsible for storing the history. (I realize that 
begs the question "What about if JON wasn't running..." to which the 
response is "there is no committed requirement...")
