There is nothing, that stops you to start a cocoon based project at sourceforge
right now. But I don't think, there should be no general coocon sandbox at 
sourceforge,because it would favor splitting the community and it would
blur, which parts of cocoon belong to the cocoon core. 

Sourceforge would be a great place for several specific projects, that use cocon,eg. a set
of 
generators,transformers etcto transform  Protein Data Bank (PDB) files as SVG and Chemical
ML,
or components to interact with SAP.

If those components are mature enough and of general interest, they can still move under
the hood of ASF.

A single cocoon sandbox on sourceforge would soon show the same bloat like cocoon.
