AFAICT this problem is pretty common in many long-term podlings. They
have the seeds for becoming large, sustainable TLPs, but for one
reason or another haven't been able to grow their communities to meet
our diversity requirements. Currently such projects are caught in a
bind, unable to graduate but also unwilling to leave the ASF for
another home.

To me this suggests that our current three state transitions [1] from
the podling phase -- termination, continuation and graduation -- may
need some adjustment. That could mean introducing new exit strategies
or relaxing the existing ones. In any case it seems like a good idea
to impose some sort of soft time limit on the continuation strategy.
