Indeed, what we're trying to do is help the non-developer members of the group articulate their use cases and tease them out to a level that is meaningful to someone who is not immersed in telecommunications themselves. In this way we hope to in turn be able to create meaningful specifications for the actual OpenStack projects impacted.

It's possible that some of these will be truly cross-project and therefore head to openstack-specs but initial indications seem to be that most will either be specific to a project, or cross only a couple of projects (e.g. nova and neutron) - I am sure someone will come up with some more exceptions to this statement to prove me wrong :).
