think we should aim for 3 core principles. Any more than that and people won't be able to repeat as a mantra.
Currently the charter has:
- container packaged
- dynamically managed
- micro-services oriented.
I like Mark's comments. However, I worry about "massive scale" as a message. LOTS of people I talked with at CloudNativeCon and other shows recently have been doing fairly small scale deployments, but they're still cloud native. I think the nature of how we scale is important -- it's about the distributed, scale-out architectures that enable massive scale (but don't impose a cost burden for the small development shop that's running on a half dozen VMs in AWS).
I think "Dynamically scalable" captures that better.
1. Speed of change
3. Dynamically scalable
And you could add "built on open source foundation" as a fourth, or leave it implicit given the foundation nature of LF/CNCF.

I agree that we may need to think more about how we communicate about microservices, but do we agree that the underlying purpose of cloud native is:
1. Speed of change (I used to refer to this as agility but in general would like to avoid the term moving forwards)
2. Resilience (We should be able to change software quickly and not have it break due to internal or external factors)
3. Scale: We'd like to do really big stuff
If we know what problems we're solving it will be easier to talk about specific practices and tools in a coherent manner.

Microservices are cloud native because they are a natural product of the ease of use for cloud. In a evolutionary way I would call them absolutely cloud native, which doesn't mean one must use them to effectively use the cloud but they do effectively show how cloud changed the way developers thought about building systems.
