I see PaaS as an application that runs on IaaS - if we're splitting into
"Cloud infrastructure" and "Cloud instances/applications" would it be
more appropriate in the cloud applications SIG?

I would also see the likes of XLCloud (elastic cloud based HPC) fitting
in that category.

What do you think?
