i am not on the Commons PMC, i can only speak for myself.

I don't think so - there are several other small components on
commons. It looks like sometimes a components gets suddenly very
active and sends more mails (like compress at the moment). Then -
maybe after the release - it wents more silents and gives room for the
other components.

There are Components like Betwixt or Jelly - i think Sanselan would
fit perfectly. However, I read a discussion were new components are
prefered to get functional names.

I don't know any other components which have not commons the package names.

However, this is from my youngster expierence. Senior comitters may
have other opinions. But I just wanted to say that I really like
Sanselan and it helped me lots of times. I strongly believe that it
would be a loss if you would let Sanselan go.
