Following the LTE discussion, I'm wondering whether we should not try to classify the edge-site scenarios by level of the complexity (i.e., features/capabilities each scenario implies/requires).

A possible classification can start with: 
a) An edge infrastructure composed of several edge sites operated by a same organisation with WAN wired connections. 
b) The same infrastructure but with LTE connections
c) Scenario a) but where the edge infrastructure is spread over several edge sites belonging to different organisations/operators
d) scenario c) but with LTE
e) ..

In parallel, we can try to identify w.r.t these scenarios what are the expected features/services from the administrator viewpoint and then from the developers viewpoint.

I have the feeling that we all have relevant scenarios with specifics according to our targets. Having a classification can allow us to move forward by just focusing on classes instead of each particular scenario independently. 

My two cents,
