I don't understand why that would make a difference in this case,
unless you're saying that the people who make architectural
decisions about what's included in OpenShift have no actual
familiarity with Ironic and OpenStack. If you know anyone who works
at that company, can you help them understand the difference?

This sounds like a problem shared by, well, basically every other
project in OpenStack too. Perhaps it's an opportunity to collaborate
on finding solutions.
