An important detail about this email is that it focuses solely on the services 
handled in the core of openstackclient and openstacksdk (the Group Formerly 
Know As Core).

I have two points about this:
- switching to OSC and this fullfilling the goal should not be connected to 
switching to SDK - which is an importang goal in itself, but I suspect that 
the effort may be higher than just adding the missing bits to the existing OSC 
- the entire analysis does not consider the OSC support for all the other 
projects, which may or not may have switched and which may support OSC more 
than SDK, so that it would be better to postpone the coordinated switch.
