So, I don't really agree with either of those points. Nova, at its core,
deals with virtual machines, while Heat deals with abstract
representations of resources. Talking about models in the Heat mission
statement seems about as out of place as talking about VMs would be in
the Nova one. And "model" is not a term we use anywhere internally. It's
not intended to be internal jargon (which would be one level of
abstraction below Heat-the-service), it's intended to be at one level of
abstraction _above_ Heat-the-service.

Sounds good enough.
