Do you think that moving JXPath to another location will increase 
visibility/community? I don't think so.

It will be just another menu item like ORO, Regexp, BCEL, ...

There are better ways to attact more users IMHO, doing more 
announcements (milestone/final releases), provide examples of 
integration possibilities with other apache projects 
(struts,velocity,OJB,cocoon,...) and cross-link. Also the apache 
newsletter should be used to promote your fine component to an even 
larger audience.
