Looking at this from a logistical perspective, it's a fair amount of
churn in code hosting as well as unwelcoming to the new volunteers,
compared to just leaving the repository where it is now and letting
them contribute to it there. If the concern is that the Neutron team
doesn't want to retain responsibility for it while they evaluate the
conviction of the new maintainers for eventual re-inclusion, then
the TC would be well within its rights to declare that the
repository can remain in place while not having it be part of the
Neutron team's responsibilities.

There are a number of possible solutions, ranging from making a new
category of provisional deliverable, to creating a lightweight
project team under the DPL model, to declaring it a pop-up team with
a TC-owned repository. There are repositories within the OpenStack
namespace which are not an official part of the OpenStack
coordinated release, after all. Solutions which don't involve having
the new work take place somewhere separate, and the work involved in
making that separate place, which will simply be closed down as
transient cruft if everything goes as desired.
