Yup. Every path is its own. We like to describe our model as a "success-based business model" where our customers' success is highly aligned with ours, and that is a principle to build off of regardless of the specifics. But companies like Shopify and AirBnB could both easily be described on these terms and I think it's a great idea for any open source organization— and then there are the details to back it all up.
