Well, AFAIU the incubator is also about establishing a community
not only about legal safety - so that would apply here as well.

...but the whole progress might be a bit too much for a little
library project. That's why the commons sandbox still makes
sense. It's about smaller components NOT on the project level.

But maybe it would be worth discussing the whole internally
sponsored projects idea over at incubator. WDTY?
