We did discuss this today, and granted it is listed as a blueprint someone in the group had expressed interest in at a point in time - though I don't believe any further work was done. The general feeling was that there isn't anything really NFV or Telco specific about this over and above the more generic use case of legacy applications. Are you able to further elaborate on the reason it's NFV or Telco specific other than because of who is requesting it in this instance?
