I think this is a wonderful idea. Those two projects show some of the possibilities of connectors, which is often a bit of an unknown. I think having those projects as TomEE sub-projects would be great. They are documented on tomitribe.io so we should think about how we'd want to bring those over and structure the website for those sub-projects.
The thing that excites me most, though, is the pattern for "crazy new ideas" as you put it. Having some space and a pattern to contribute those new ideas sounds like a great way to get more people involved. I have created some small helper modules that make it a little easier to use different JMS providers - I have HornetQ and Artemis so far, and could easily crank out a couple more having worked with JBossMQ, Tibco EMS and Websphere MQ recently. I know that Daniel Cuhna created a CLI tool at one point - I'm not sure where that is, but having a welcoming place for initiatives like that means we can pull those folks into the TomEE community. +1 from me. Happy to help in any way I can.
