The key difference between Stackforge and OpenStack is governance. Any
project can be in Stackforge. Projects that are considered "OpenStack"
projects are special in two ways:

1- They need to fit the "OpenStack" requirements as defined by the TC
2- They need to place themselves under the oversight of the TC

In return, they get voting rights to elect the TC itself.

While most projects in Stackforge actually fit (1) and accept (2), not
all of them do. It's also not a decision that can be made for them (due
to (2)), so we can't just migrate them.

Of course they aren't. They don't sign up for anything, and our
governance model has no sort of control over them.
