That would replace "configuration and customization of cloud instances" by
"framework for handling userdata to configure a newly instantiated instance".
I am not convinced it is an improvement.
On the other hand, patches that globally improve the short and long description
The current description is:
configuration and customization of cloud instances
System to handle early initialization of a cloud instance. Cloud-init can for
example set a default locale and a host name, generate SSH private host keys,
add SSH keys to a user's .ssh/authorized_keys so they can log in, and set up
ephemeral mount points.
Cloud-init's behavior can be configured via user-data, given by the user at
instance launch time.
