But do you really feel comfortable when the main point of oversight  
for the ASF in
an incubated project is in the pay of the project sponsor and quite  
internally reporting to one of the project committer ?
The potential for conflict is huge and I would personnally hate to be  
in such
an awkward position.

I personally will not, others from Portals may wish to give it a try but
I somehow doubt it given that the toolkit didn't even show up in the
short list  when we first investigated the field for our AJAX support.
I don't see why incubating it would change in any way its fitness
for our purpose.
(a quick google search shows that this is true for all existing
  ASF projects. Dojo, DWR, Prototype, Rico have all generated some
traffic, Zimbra never)
