I was going to disagree, but after thinking for a sec, ... well,  
yes.  To me only things that distinguish a subproject from main tree  
is that

a) it's not in the main tree

b) it has separate release cycles

c) it has a subheading on the web site so there can be specific docs  
describing it

There's not much more to it.  There is nothing special about the  
people working on it.  We all are working on it, effectively.

What do you see the burden as?  Right now, we have the code hanging  
around, and I was just suggesting that we

a) move it out of the main tree

b) let it have separate release cycles

c) let there be space on the website so it can be described, pointed  
to, etc

Does this help?  We can optionally add another "project" in JIRA so  
that the release numbers don't get confusing, like we did for tools,  
but that's just because components in JIRA can't have separate  
versions and releases.
