So is that like making a customer premise have the equivalent of dumb 
terminals (maybe we can call them 'semi-smart' terminals) where those 
things basically can be remote controlled (aka the VMs on them can be 
upgraded or downgraded or deleted or ...) by the corporate (or other) 
entity that is controlling those terminals?

If that's the case, then I don't exactly call that a cloud (in my 
classical sense), but more of a software delivery (and remote-control) 
strategy (and using nova to do this for u?).

But then I don't know all the 3 or 4 letter acronyms so who knows, I 
might be incorrect with the above assumption :-P
