If it runs on a Enterprise distro, it should also run on a community

Given there is a package/requirement not available/satisfiable for a
major distribution, for whatever reason: how should we handle this?

Will the unavailability of features/packages etc. block us from adding
those features/packages as requirement to OpenStack? Even if we know,
that this fact will exclude xyz-users from using OpenStack on top of
distribution xyz?
