May be. But please consider the following:

- Commons won't be able to catch them all. More precisely: If you dilute the
  commons community too much, then you'll just make it another umbrella
  project. It already *is* big, with so many components.
- Having commons as the target doesn't imply the necessity of a special
  commons@incubator or whatever subproject.
  A very reasonable alternative might be that the Incubator decides "Ok, this
  project did its housework and could leave the Incubator, apart from
  community issues. Why not offer it to some project as a subproject?"
  And this project *could* include Commons.

  I am aware that this would likely need to change the Incubator policy in
  advance, but to me it makes much more sense than throwing everything
  at Commons.


I have always wished for my computer to be as easy to use as my
telephone; my wish has come true because I can no longer figure out
how to use my telephone.
