I'd also like to add that there is already a codified OASIS standard 
(TOSCA) that covers application definition at what appears to be a 
similar level to Murano. Basically it's a more abstract version of what 
Heat does plus workflows for various parts of the lifecycle (e.g. backup).

Heat and TOSCA folks have been working together since around the time of 
the Havana design summit with the aim of eventually getting a solution 
for launching TOSCA applications on OpenStack. Nothing is set in stone 
yet, but I would like to hear from the Murano folks how they are 
factoring compatibility with existing standards into their plans.
