What about a Hyper Cloud?

I was reading Cloud(s), Hype, and Freedom on Freedom to Tinker and thought of the different concepts of cloud that he was describing and was thinking of a Hyper or Meta Cloud for such things as storage or computing power.

One of Stallman's objections - which I tend to agree with - is that you have no control over the service being provided remotely. This is the same as when I get network services from a Level 3 or MCI WorldMob, for more control I would distribute my traffic over multiple independent network vendors. In this way I can mitigate part of the risk I am facing.

Why shouldn't the same hold true for Cloud Computing?
