Title: Heat CFN policy rules not all enforced

Steven Hardy from Red Hat reported a vulnerability in Heat's default
API policy enforcement. By calling the CreateStack or UpdateStack
methods, an in-instance user may be able to create or update a stack
in violation of the default policy. Only setups using Heat's
cloudformation-compatible API are affected.

This fix will be included in the icehouse-2 development milestone
and in a future 2013.2.1 release.
