First, it's the PMC that should accept it as top-level project. 
And I'm not very sure it's a good idea - it works very well as part
of commons.

Having separate mailing lists for http client ( or any other commons
component that wants to ) is possible and a good idea - all it
needs is a vote from the commiters.

I'm not sure I understand the reasons.

So you want to force everyone working on commons projects to read
and follow the sandbox ? That's crazy - I can barely follow all
the components in commons.

The argument that everyone must be forced to read won't work
anyway - it's just a bit harder to hit 'd' few dozends times
and deal with a messy mailbox.
