Instances created by Nova are supposed to be managed (and thus shut down) by Nova. Said that Nova checks e.g. when nova-compute starts if the VM is active and updates the instance status accordingly.

This applies to every Nova diver (libvirt/KVM, ESXI, Hyper-V, etc), so requests to change this behaviour should be brought to the attention of the general OpenStack community (e.g. OpenStack Dev ML, etc)
