Great summary Brian. Perhaps the most important observation was Sushma's comment that "power is a system design problem, not just an implementation problem" and your later comment about software people getting involved and about the careful definition of use cases. The use case analysis is so fundamental, and a team that ignores that could implement all the voltage domains, clock frequency & voltage scaling, clock gating, etc. that they can dream of, yet still end up with a power inefficient system solution.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
