This is tempting ...

The pros:
There is currently some momentum in [math] and several people seem
interested. There are also several other mathematical projects floating
around and apparently ready to cooperate. The component is becoming
quite large by now and its focus slightly shifts away from the rest of
the commons components.

The cons:
Maybe the current interest will vanish once 2.0 is out. A top level
project is probably more administrative work than simply resting in the
comfort of the commons.

What do other people think ?
