I like it! I'll try and think of some more useful comments in a bit.

"apt-get for the web" is a useful buzz-phrase that helps people 
understand juju.

Backend independence is another feature that is important to people - 
repeatable, testable, deployments that don't tie you to a specific 
provider. Also being able to perform your full deployment locally (or to 
a CI server) for full stack testing, using the same configuration you 
use for production.

I'm trying to work out if I think your big diagram at the top is too 
complex or not. It would be nice if people could see it and immediately 
"get" juju. I'm not sure how realistic that is, and certainly coming 
from a place of already understanding juju the diagram encapsulates the 
core concepts well.
