changing or removing to comply with ASF release criteria.  This may limit where we could host
a built system VM template, but even with some limitations we shouldn't let that block an
ACS release.   If you have continued concerns about this we should surface them quickly as
this would be a big addition to the ACS release scope (at least from what I was expecting).
 Ideally we would be able to have a discussion with whoever will ultimately decide if this
is allowed.
