*** Warning, heavy use of "the cloud is transportation" analogy follows. ***

Just like FedEx bought Kinkos, and UPS bought Mailboxes etc., eventually
once the infrastructure gets efficient, it makes sense to give consumers
a full service option. However these things are vastly different, so it
would make sense for OpenStack to adopt some PaaS that has gotten
successful rather than try and build one. Retail just works differently
than logistics.
