But currently VPNaaS does not support OVN and while using namespaces is an option I would love to see "native" VPN (site2site ipsec and Wireguard) support in OVN.

By site2site you mean IPSec between 2 independent OVN deployments ? Or
one OVN deployment and other non OVN deployment ?

As I understand, neutron VPNaaS is an advanced service in openstack.
Doesn't neutron-vpnaas work with OVN ?
If not can we add support in neutron-vpnaas for OVN ? I'm really not
sure how we can add this support natively in OVN.

If your requirement is to interconnect 2 OVN deployments, you can
probably explore the ovn interconnection feature
which was added recently. You can refer here [1] if you're interested.
