We all know pros and cons. And I will still fight for users to get global infrastructure terminology  (e.g. he is going to define Node Profiles instead of Flavors). Because I received a lot of negative feedback on mixing overcloud terms into undercloud, confusion about overcloud/undercloud term itself, etc. If it would be easier for developers to name the concepts in the background differently then it's fine - we just need to talk about 2 terms per concept then. And I would be a bit afraid of schizophrenia…

Haha, sorry if this is my fault for reviving this whole thread :) Terminology is always tough. It probably makes sense to start with where we initially agreed and get some Operators eyes on the design so that they can weigh in.
