Yes, you can do that. It's just a bit cumbersome to involve the board in
relatively minor changes in the technical direction of a project. Better to
set a scope that's tight enough to differentiate the project from other
efforts but broad enough to allow the project to evolve naturally.

Note that I don't know Oozie in detail, so if you think the currently
stated scope is OK for at least the foreseeable future, then it's perfectly
fine. It just looks a bit tight to an outside observer like myself.
