I would worry a lot about privacy/liability if OpenStack were to provide
ZNCaaS. Not being on infra I can't speak definitively, but I know I
wouldn't be especially excited about hosting & securing folks' private

Eavesdrop just records public meetings, and the logs are 100% public so
no privacy headaches. Many folks using OpenStack's ZNCaaS would be in
other channels (or at least would receive private messages) and
OpenStack probably shouldn't take responsibility for keeping all those safe.
