Yeah - one important item to consider when thinking about new Projects 
is that OpenJDK is a 'place to collaborate on an open-source 
implementation of the Java Platform, Standard Edition, and related 

So the less related a potential Project proposal is to that, the smaller 
is the chance of it actually passing through the required vote by 
OpenJDK Members [0], and the less sense it makes as an OpenJDK Project.

Another way of looking at it is 'would one write one or more JEPs for 
it?'. If the answer is yes, then that would be indicator that something 
makes more sense as an OpenJDK Project.
