It would indeed help people who are new to openstack. The last time I looked for mongodb related packages I looked for mongo in the package names and I suspect there are a number of people with this search pattern ;-)

Would you be so kind as to file a "wishlist" bug to the releavant packages ? It requires a lot more work than you would think. I assume that when you write "I request" you mean "I would like" rather than "I require". Let me know if I'm mistaken.
