The thread has lost focus and cherry picking replies..

To restate things since maybe you missed my points
1) SE is a programming model and needs a home of it's own. Having a
programming model with it's headers and all other stuff glued into a
runtime project which intends to be universal and PM agnostic doesn't make

1.1) The more I look, the most it seems SE is just a step-child project and
stuffing it in llvm while still not having any users or strong backing
doesn't make sense. We have enough PM already and my gut feeling is this
isn't going in a direction to bring in other stakeholders.

2) Parallel name sucks -1, too generic. imho project is more focused on
offloading. We're not proposing the whole OpenMP runtime be merged here,
but just the offloading part. Yes onloading will be included, but just the
generic pieces.
