Isn't this somewhat mitigated by the fact that openstack currently is not used for anything but to setup test platforms, with significant manual tweaking to get them running ? Maybe you know about people/companies already using it in production or planning to use 2011.3 in production before essex is released. From an outsider perspective this is unclear and it would be great to have your insight on this.
