The discussion doc attempts to explain the goal, which is not to produce an AMI - it's to put a community-owned Kubernetes entry in the AWS Marketplace. The idea received general support in the SIG-AWS call, which is why I wrote it up.
One way to do this is via an AMI, but a CloudFormation variant is also possible, (I understand the Marketplace supports CloudFormation now).
I note, there is already an AMI in kube-deploy.
I differentiate in the doc between an ephemeral deployment using CloudFormation and kubeadm (of which there are also existing examples) and one based on kops - which could also be submitted to the Marketplace and matches a pattern recommended for AWS users (EC2 instance as resource/cluster controller).
The Marketplace opportunity is to reach more users and help them get Kubernetes up and running on AWS.
