I think cloud computing still doesn't have a well agreed up on standards and definitions. While people are trying to stretch the meaning and adding their flavor, I am not sure if my suggestions will be valid.

It is truly business that is driving the way the technology needs to go and not vice versa. Let's see how this all forms in to an actual cloud.

I have more interesting thoughts around this area but not sure if they are mature enough yet.
