It seems to me that John Cochrane (Alfresco) is not trying to be all things to all people as you state. He is focusing on the "Enterprise" with his product.

He understands this space from a marketing perspective; the problems that users are facing, the key industry influencers, the competitors, etc. I believe that his intent from the very beginning was to bring Alfresco into this space, compete, and then eventually dominate the industry.

Open Source for this purpose is an enabler for getting his product developed, etc, but is not a "means to an end" as you would like to see.

Obviously John's target market and approach is considerably different than the one you would choose. It's his choice and he obviously thinks we can compete at that level.

Time will tell.
