OpenSAF comparison

I had a look at the 2014 presentation here:

In it they compared 6 platforms however OpenSAF was not one of them. I am
wondering where people creating these PaaS systems see OpenSAF fitting in
and what the regions of overlap. There seems to be a significant amount of
overlap in terms of functionality, for example, the ability to install,
upgrade and remove an application on set of nodes, a distributed
configuration database and monitoring of applications. Is there any reason
why OpenSAF is not considered for comparison when it provides some of the
features required for a PaaS system? Is it missing something fundametal to
PaaS? Is it too awkward to admin or use? Is it not very well known?
