I don't think it's a 'rule'. Just common sense. Commons-sandbox code is 
unofficial, and could easily be abandoned, or repudiated, or the API changed 
wildly. Since arguing that a particular project wouldn't be is pretty much 
the same as saying it should be accepted into commons (or some other project, 
or a top level project, ...), I think Costin is saying that step ought to be 
done first.  It shows there really is the level of support there for other 
projects to depend on it.

It's about risk management.
