In a recent meeting, Oliver expressed concerns about us having services running in labs which are treated sort of like they were in production. Examples include WDQS (already) and maps (potentially).

We agreed to have this discussion on the mailing list, so this is an invitation to do so. I am not familiar enough with the various technical issues to explain them properly, so hopefully someone else will step in and do so. I believe one big area of concern is analytics.
