It is not clear in the mission statement that "interoperable" refer to just "application interoperability"
>> building interoperable public and private clouds 
>> serving the cloud users' needs.

This again come back to the discussion on how we define "interoperability".

Should OpenStack's mission statement reflect a broader vision of Cloud Computing?

Application interoperability across OpenStack clouds.

The original TC-suggested wording ("building interoperable public and private clouds") was arguably slightly clearer there.
