The idea being that everything under one product should be a
subdivision of what would be included anyway. I realise there's the
potential there to snowball again.
It looks like the Cloud and Server WGs are both going this way, with Server
offering a base plus different "roles" (like your web and fileserver
examples), and Cloud offering a generic image plus several tailored for
specific uses (docker, big data, etc.). The Workstation WG is going in a
different direction, but I also think the situation is legitimately a bit
different, as the intention is for the server roles to have fundamentally
the same interface/experience, and it's likely that basic things like
cloud-init will remain in the different cloud... uh... spins.
