Just my .02,

I agree with those who have said distinction is still difficult with
initial thoughts and possibly fleshing out more clearly how that would be
handled - opium branding, questions/criteria proposed by Chris, etc. - can
address the identified potential confusion. I like the idea of branding the
infra team - wonder what they think of that. As others have stated I do not
have any good suggestions just throwing in an extra +1 where appropriate :)
