I was speaking more about the "we need to pick between two approaches,
let's document them" that the technical vision exercise started as.
Basically I mean I'm missing clear examples of where pursuing AWS would
mean breaking vCenter.

Right, so I think I'm leaning for an "and" choice.
Basically OpenStack wants to be an AWS, but ended up being used a lot as
a vCenter (for multiple reasons, including the limited success of
US-based public cloud offerings in 2011-2016). IMHO we should continue
to target an AWS, while doing our best to not break those who use it as
a vCenter. Would explicitly acknowledging that (we still want to do an
AWS, but we need to care about our vCenter users) get us the alignment
you seek ?
