Playing catch up on this big thread today.  Trying selectively respond given
how much there is here to dig through.

Regarding this particular issue below (handling VM sizing requests) I also
vote for the provider kicking back an error for unsupported sizes rather
than Œrounding¹.  It will be easy enough for folks to have templates for
different providers or to provide some kind of optional templating within
the spec that providers can surface in a machine consumable way.
