Where does it say test/dev has to be done solely in a cloud data
center?  This bit
   For the purposes of this memorandum, rooms with at least one
server, providing
   services (whether in a production, test, stage, development, or any other
   environment), are considered data centers.
seems to be more about trying to close the self-reporting loophole -
ie 'these aren't the droids you're looking for.'   for example -
