Bob/Monique/Linda,

I personally am very sceptical of (and would vigorously oppose) any attempt
to *coordinate* standards in the cloud space and echo Andy Edmonds in
pointing at cloud-standards.org (which already purports to do so). I am
however fully supportive of *collaboration* between standards orgs and
believe cloud-standards.org is as good a (neutral) venue as any, having
participated in a number of their calls. I also don't believe a group exists
(or even could exist) which would be able to objectively assess the cloud
space as each views the problem from a completely different perspective - in
this case the underlying telecommunications infrastructure while one could
argue cloud is more user-centric. Nevertheless the activity may prove useful
for ITU-T's internal use.

What was abundantly clear at today's bar bof is that there are a number of
areas where the IETF can deliver significant value now and we should focus
on these rather than participating in the landrush going on around us - as I
said in my presentation, there are currently no standards in cloud, only
specifications.

Getting back to Chris's original question, I don't think there's much point
in spending any time creating yet another model for cloud, however
enumerating specific potential work areas (e.g. CloudAudit, CloudLog, HTTP
enhancements, ARP222, etc.) would be time well spent... particularly if it
were to result in drafts as is the case for these examples.

Cheers,

Sam
