No doubt, we appreciate the sincerity.

Note that there are multiple aspect that would require license grants and
provisions
that complicate any Java-ecosystem grant to the ASF.  It isn't strictly
limited to a
given library or framework.  The TCK license terms themselves effectively
killed
more than one ASF effort, and make the consideration/donation of JSR-related
works nearly impossible, at least not as implementation of "named"
specifications
within that ecosystem.  Even a completely renamed/rescoped 'fork' is
questionable.

I find this all highly improbable, but stranger things have happened over
the past
10 years, so if you would like to pursue this, we have the resources to
facilitate
and help frame the scope of grants required to make such an offer happen.

Cheers,

Bill
