Eh ? Is there someplace a statement or an intention which says IETF will work only on “service like EC2” ?

	I really think this is the realm of DMTF. They have a good start with OVF. There is more to do, (network, security and policy abstraction to name a couple) but it would be good for the industry if those container issues were mostly handled in this same place.

 

That may be true, but what IETF is renowned for is creating relatively tight, interoperable specifications for well defined/constrained problems. Others tend to want to boil oceans (e.g. OVF's normative reference to CIM), which may well be necessary to solve their problems (e.g. "private" cloud) but not ours (e.g. services like EC2).
