I've had some thoughts on Kubernetes and I think the abstraction is wrong. IMO the ideal orchestration platform would be message and actor based, similar to Erlang's VM. And all internals would be web-assembly based.
Of course it would still have to be stateless but that can be solved by just starting actors for every task from fresh, giving it only access to the current state of the part of the cluster it manages and expecting it to return a transformed state.
