It seems like a lot of work needs to be done and their will be a lot of chaos. There are no consistent standards so each CSP is taking a different approach. There needs to be a collaborative effort or forum for CSPs other than a conference or symposium where CSPs meet quarterly to develop standarized processes, priorities, approaches and guidelines otherwise partners, vendors and users will find it difficult to select a company to purchase services.

Many doors, one kingdom
I suspect that most of the "different approaches" are all going to lead to the same place, probably involving merging the most convenient material from different  companies and their different suppliers, and that in 30 years no one will be able to see any significant difference between what the different companies provide except for whatever market niches develop. It's a classic case of convergent evolution; all the advantages are in not forcing your customers to use your particular chunk/system/protocol if they have already learned or acquired another. So the race is exciting, but they're all going to the same finish line (minus a few on the way who will stumble and quit).
