An ASF Member (you) can sponsor it.  It doesn't take a PMC, unless that fell
by the wayside somewhere along the way.

It doesn't seem different at all.  There are established codebases outside
of the ASF, e.g., Ruper and Greebo, existing communities around them, and an
ASF Member (you) interested in sponsoring them into the Incubator.

Given those criteria, it seems reasonable for it to follow the normal
incubation process.  There is no guarantee that it will succeed, but there
isn't supposed to be one.
