Being in one program means you're in the same team, the same meetings,
with ultimate decisions taken by the same one PTL. It obviously makes it
easier to avoid duplication of effort and make stronger architectural or
placement decisions.

Being in two separate programs means we need to arbitrate conflicts
between the two programs at the TC level, or accept some amount of
duplication of effort or technical debt increase. This is why the TC is
so focused on non-overlapping scopes when considering new programs, and
is willing to defer blessing applications until teams work in a
complementary fashion.

Here it seems that we are combining several things: an instrumentation
library (which sounds more like Oslo or QA), a performance testing
system (which sounds more like QA), and future operator tools like a SLA
management platform, LogaaS (which sounds more like their own program,
but those tools are not really "there" yet). The combination is what
creates the tension.

I'm not saying there is no solution to this puzzle, just explaining
where the tension comes from.
