So if some group creates a 100% open project, and follows all of the Opens, at what point do we consider relevance to OpenStack itself? How about a 100% open text editor? Can we add that, since after all OpenStack code is written with text editors.

CDNs are not part of OpenStack, even if some parts of some projects may use one from time to time. A common interface to CDNs seems to address a problem that is not really part of what OpenStack does.

It's great to want to include people, but I think that there is more to it than just whether their practices mirror ours.
