I've made a specs page here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBusinessServer
You can also see some mockup pictures I made here:

I'm unsure at this stage whether I'll submit it to Brainstorm or go straight
to a Launchpad blueprint, but at least I've got a spec for people to look

Any feedback or suggestions are appreciated.
