After reading this thread again, Mel's and Tomeu's summaries are spot on.

1,2, and 4 are SoaS Project level decisions.

We could go even one step further and say 4.3 is a marketing team/soas
project level decision.  This give the marketing team the freedom to
identify a marketing strategy base on either the platform of a
specific project with the overall project without committing the Sugar
Labs to a 'official' position
