I would expect an IoT image for a gateway device would need a bunch of
other things that wouldn't be relevant for a generic cloud image so
would it be better to target that as a separate image rather than
trying to jam everything into one? It would be easier to define and a
lot simpler in terms of QA and other moving parts.

True - that's why I noted there may be use cases for both. And we should attempt to wire up the usability thru both stacks even if we end up building 2 different images.

Also as Colin noted, Atomic host is likely to get used on both bare-metal and cloud  - so giving networkd a full press effort for a release cycle might be good. In not like these decisions cannot be changed.
