So basically my Incubator Sandbox is exactly the committers' module. Ok.

Is there a PMC overlooking it? Should someone overlook it anyway?

Dunno really, but it would be nice if mailing lists or such can be 
created to help extemporary commiunities, and closed with not many 
problems if the traffic goes to 0.

Should this module be publicized to committers more?
Should it be the "standard" module where committers can try out new stuff?

 From my (albeit limited) experience there is a need for it, and nobody 
seems to know about it much where I come from.

What are the cons of making it part of the Incubator PMC roles?

It /seems/ that it's part of incubating new stuff, no?
