+1 Great simplicity, general enough, I like it.

We shouldn't guarantee anything, since we're still OSS based on community, where nobody is forced doing stuff. But I won't give up a target to make even production deployment as easy as possible. If we can make the admin's life easier, we should.

I feel it describes a general set of more than one applications, not related to a way how it is available; we don't have to imagine a specific technology behind that. So, for me it is understood-able, but I may be influence by the fact that I already use that term for some time almost daily.

Absolutely and the current version seems simple to me.
