Any project can request to have an incubation sub-project. All you have to do is ask for it to be created. More details are at https://www.eclipse.org/projects/dev_process/#4_9_Incubators >> - Is MQTT-SN implemented in Paho?

You might also open a bug to capture other suggestions from the community.
