2 and 3, yes. Absolutely.

1 and 4 just indicate you don't understand the value of cloud computing and are an IT employee trying to protect your turf - likely to disappear quickly because the decision maker is looking at the cost factors, not fear factors that he is looking to eliminate.

At least in my experience....
