Call me ignorant but that sounds like the incubator without incubation

If you want to know about "sandboxes", ask the Turbine people. We have
had quite a number. Stratum, Fulcrum (which finally picked up speed),
flux, jyve, origami, you've named it. 

A sandbox without a defined process that either promotes a project to
become a "real" Jakarta project or calls quits and closes it (and moves
it into archives) will IMHO lead to a lot of "dead stuff". Look at
sourceforge. While I like the basic idea of "open source running free",
my experiences from Turbine show that it does not work without at least
some control.

So I vote -0. I don't really like the idea but I'm not deeply enough in
the discussion to veto it.
