I was actually having similar thoughts last night before I went to
bed.  The forum admins want to maintain their own decision making
apparatus separate and distinct from the AOOo PPMC.  In other words
(in Apache terms) they want their own PPMC.  Since they have 75
volunteers, this in itself would be a good nucleus for a standalone

As a Podling that also gives them the opportunity to understand the
Apache Way and how Apache works at a more leisurely pace.
