Basically, in OpenStack the structure reflects what people work on,
rather than the other way around. We can adjust the structure when teams

> Ok; I think the big thing is “is there a general resistance to the idea” - meaning, an overarching UX program with specific deliverables - from what you say here it seems like starting the SDK as a stand alone is OK, openstackclient is already there, but the problem remains with other UX / quality of life issues (security, i18n, accessibility) which pour into more of a cross-functional role.

Note that Security (as in vulnerability response) is already handled by
the Vulnerability Management Team as part of the Release Management
program. If you have UX concerns to share about that aspect, feel free
to contact us via regular channels (the -tc list is not the best place
to discuss stuff since it's a moderated list).
