[Incubator] Should "MetaCRS" be dropped from OSGeo Incubation (and maybe also from OSGeo-Live)?

Apaprently there is activity happening around the edges, I was talking with
Rob and Martin about one of the metac crs projects.

MetaCRS is kind of a "top-level" project facilitating communication between
a number of different groups. As such it may be able to recast itself as a
"committee" (that has a shared github some of their initiatives).

I think MetaCRS would be a great candidate for an "OSGeo Technology" stream
- the stated goal of MetaCRS is to:

*"treat a variety of coordinate system activities as one Project from an
OSGeo point of view. This helps provide enough "project mass" to justify
the full OSGeo project treatment.*

If we set up "OSGeo Technology" right these individual projects will meet
their goal of being recognized as the fundamental components that they are
(and be supported).
