I like this idea. The new format definitely made tracks a bit useless
this time around, and ripe for elimination.

There seems to be plenty of talk about what cloud is capable of, but
what is the state of cloud right now? I think perhaps some more
presentations about where cloud is now would make the UDS "where are we
headed" sessions a bit more interesting.

I think the track lead position can be reduced to UDS planning and
implementation. Organization and tagging (if adopted) of blueprints and
sessions would be their primary focus. In addition, I always felt some
review of the outcomes and follow-up on commitments has always been needed.
The sessions themselves seem to run fine with just the owner of the
Blueprint and a few interested parties running the discussion.
