Under "charm store" you should add "charms for many common pieces of 
infrastructure" (or something similar but better worded), possibly 
listing a few examples - especially openstack.

The two geniuses of juju (to my mind) are the charm store (service 
component deployment and configuration encapsulated in charms) and 
service orchestration. That you can deploy many parts of your 
application stack and have juju configure them, and *reconfigure* them, 
to talk to each other. In my experience people haven't yet understood 
the power/utility of orchestration. So if you can find a way to 
communicate and emphasise orchestration that would be good...
