We already discussed that at dev@commons.a.o. Commons does not want to 
be an umbrella project, and I completely agree on that. But we cannot 
(yet) consider Commons RDF as a component that fits there (or sandbox), 
since we have to grow the community and evolve the design before been 
prepared to be there.

Personally I'd prefer an outsider. The larger representation of Apache 
Commons here (either as Champion or Mentors) the better for the success 
of the proposal.
