Federated Cloud is exactly the right name, I'd say, as it is about bringing 
clouds together. The wiki links by Alexander prove that point ;-)

In any case, I've made sure the announcement and other documents and blogs 
around the release use the right terms. If I missed anything, let me know :D

Everything I do and say is based on my view of the world today. I am not 
responsible for changes in the world, nor my view on it. Everything I say is 
meant in a positive and friendly way, unless explicitly stated otherwise.
