Absolutely. I completely agree, the ASF could certainly be a spec-lead.
Since the ASF is a member of the JCP I would even argue that
everybody who can represent the ASF (members of the foundation)
could submit a JSR on behalf of the ASF. Is that correct?

I would say it would be wise to allocate a project for that though,
since our calculations show that we spent roughly 30 person
years on JSR-170 just for the herding the cats (vendors), write the
Spec, RI & TCK.
This may vary greatly from JSR to JSR.
