VDI high level risk assessment

we need to do high level risk assessment of a VDI (vmware horizon view). E.g. identify potential risks and then look how the design/management/monitoring mitigates against those. The main risks we could think of were the obvious - availability & acceptable performance etc, but am keen to know what kind of risks you would suggest are assessed with such a technology, and the common mitigating controls you would seek assurances on.

1. Security and Governance - anti-virus
2. Performance - you've highlighted that but also don't forget End User Acceptance - Usability!
3. Design - you can compare your design with the VMware Best Practice and Deployment Guides and Proof of Concept Whitepapers
4. Licensing and Support ongoing costs - may be considered a risk, as VMware increases it's prices, and you would have to switch Vendors to what ? Citrix XenDesktop ?

I was also thinking monitoring and maintenance, or lack thereof.
