And we also should remember one of the reason that spawned OpenStack
into existence: some other cloud solution was open-core, and there was
multiple conflict of interest where upstream made it difficult to
contribute (because they needed to differentiate commercially). That
very much is the main issue of any software adopting the open-core
model: conflict of interest by the company behind it.
