Originally, Keycloak was going to be a SaaS.  One internet service where 
users could register and create their own Realms....But, we decided that 
users will probably want to have full control of their security metadata 
and not share a database with other users.  Less we have to worry about 
from a storage security standpoint.

I've never built a cartridge so apologies if I have it wrong, but IMO, 
UPS should support bundling its own keycloak server already 
preconfigured, or, it should hook into an existing keycloak instance.  I 
don't know if this would require 2 different cartridges, or if you would 
have an online "installation" UI to make these types of decisions.
