Nor should it.  But I don't think that "no notion of where it would exit" is
accurate.  As noted in the proposla, it is intended for this project to
become a TLP, as is the Board's desire for all major independent projects.
If that were not an option, I agree with Henri that Jakarta and DB would be
the most likely alternatives.

If that were an entry criteria, I'd agree with the concept, although Jakarta
has too much on its plate and should probably be closed to new projects
until more of the existing ones are promoted to TLP status, so I'd suggest
DB, instead.  But it ought not come to that, given the Board's TLP

My understanding is "yes" and "when the podling begins to demonstrate is
maturity", respectively.  I don't see that it is particularly different from
asking when a Jakarta or XML project should be promoted to a TLP.
