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

Excellent. I think having MQTT-SN in par with regular MQTT would be a great

As a starting point MQTTLens might be a good candidate. You might also open
a bug to capture other suggestions from the community.
