Is it correct to understand that starting a "sub-project" does
not constitute an effort to build a new community?

If so I suggest starting this under xml-commons - XML Schema
to/from Java mapping / modeling is a critical aspect of so many
projects that I cannot believe that there wouldn't be lots of
folks interested in participating. Axis for example has its own
variation of JAXB already (the variation found in JAX-RPC, which
I understand is the new foundation of the new and revitalized
JAXB) and so all that work could easily migrate to this project.
