If it isn’t part of a cloud architecture, then it isn’t part of OpenStack’s mission. The ‘size’ qualifier relates to everything from massive clouds like CERN and Walmart down to small private clouds. It doesn’t mean ‘any sort of computing platform’; the focus is clear that we are an "Open Source Cloud Computing platform”.
